My resolutions for 2009
Why should I resolve to be any different than I seem to be.
The way I am is where I’m at. As far as I’m concerned, that’s that!
I could resolve to change my ways to have less sleep and longer days,
To count the kilojoules I eat, to cut out sweets and eat less meat,
To take up running round the block - rejuvenate my body clock.
But why resolve to make the change, I feel we all fall in the range
- of life’s three score years and ten. And as I ponder with my pen
I know I’m on the downhill run, so what the heck, I’ll make it fun.
I’ve come this far with habits bad, but really, do I feel too sad
One resolution I will make - a promise that I will not brake:
I, Margaret Muir, resolve this year
To change absolutely nothing here!
