The prompt was late, honest! It was to write a “getting around to something” poem. What could be more a propos than writing about procrastinating making New Year’s resolutions!
This I Resolve
Every December without fail
I compile myself a list
Of resolutions for the coming year
And this I’ve never missed
But this year I fear is different
I think I know just why
Too many resolutions made and broke
In previous years gone by
Is there a point I wonder
In taking up my pen
To list hopes and aspirations
For the year 2010?
Yet habit being so strong
I guess I’ll heed the call
And get around to those pesky things
Before the dropping of the ball!
