On New Year’s Day

Hey, January! ( One )
Don’t get Uppity
You aren’t my Cuppa Tea !

O the Guilt
Of making no Resolutions !
Any Solutions ?

What do I hold
Against January One ?
It makes August feel Old ! ( already )

We have many
New Year Days
In April, my Calendar says !

Till April, you get
To say , The Year is Young
Yet. Then ? Regret.

Hurry, utility –
Never to my taste
Time’s made to waste.

New Year
I’m ignoring you
You know what’s boring? You!

So perverse
Fighting the Calender
With Verse !

What’s the good word ?
I’m in the mood
To be absurd !
