New Year's Resolution

Whereas the year, unlike myself,
Has changed- to twenty-ten;

Whereas the expectation is
There's change as well in men;

Whereas that hope has lasted
Since Abel fell to Cain;

Resolved, we all shall mend our ways
Down roads that rough remain.

FITTEST, adj. Most fitted.

Only you would bring up Cain & Abel in a we really don't keep resolutions but there's always hope poem

This one has my giggling

Have a wonderful 2010, Doug. I actually plan to :)

Jim said...

Nice, Doug. But, you resolve for you and I will resolve for myself. I am the fittest to do that.

I'm fit as a fiddle that's out of tune.

Thom said...

i would have never thought to put Cain and Abel in a New Year's Resolution post. What is correct: Twenty Ten or Two Thousand Ten? Maybe the rough road will clear that one up

As Pia mentioned, Thom, only Doug would bring up Cain and Abel in a New Year's Resolution post. I'm not surprised you would have never thought of it. May the rough road ahead not affect your driving, ice cream truck or otherwise.

Fit-test: sort of like an A-bomb test.

This year is my year to fit in that group -- she said while licking a spoon covered in frosting.

I'll be fit to be tied, more likely.
Great poem you have there, Doug:)

eh the one dancing to that Madonna video.....

Doug said...

Pia, I didn't mean to be hopeful. Maybe that should have been since Jacob first robbed Esau.

Right you are, Jim. This is just a modest proposal.

And I, Icy, am as a string grown wide.

I always expect it to, Thom.

A generous wish, Karen. Thank you.

True, TLP. Both take place on bikini islands.

Good spoon, Quilly?

More than likely, Actonbell. Cheers!

Ha, Cooper. No doubt.

Any spoon covered in frosting is a good spoon!
