My New Year’s Resolutions,
are right here on this list,
and judging by the number,
there’s nothing that I’ve missed.
I’ve said I’ll walk the dog each day
and pick up all his poo.
I’ve vowed I’ll get my homework done
and even study too.
I’ve promised I’ll no longer tease
my little brother, Jake.
I’ve stated I will shovel snow
and grass and leaves, I’ll rake.
I’ve said I’ll make my bed each day
and keep my bedroom neat,
and with that final promise,
my list is sure complete.
So now I sit and watch the clock;
my New Year’s list is done,
but acting like “an angel” means
that next year won’t be fun.
