New year's resolutions
made to be broken.
I don't entertain them,
they're never once spoken.

Lose weight by the pound,
read this many books,
I give those kind of folks
my best dirty looks.

Start a new business!
Make an extra dime!
Who has the energy?
Who has the time?

Take a vacation!
Buy a new car!
Save up for them both,
drop coins in a jar.

No, I'll give it no thought,
not even a token.
New year's resolutions
are made to be broken.
