Why I ‘tion’ New Year’s Resolutions
There’s a simple explanation
For my lack of inclination
To indulge in the formation
Of a New Year’s resolution.
Though it isn’t quite revulsion
There’s a clear lack of compulsion
That could lead to my expulsion
From your New Year’s dissolution.
For I know, without exception,
All attempts at deep reflection
Would be merely self-deception
Causing foolish obligations
To impose untold restrictions
And abandon my addictions
To some foolish New Year’s fiction
Fraught with cruel self-castigation
And my poem’s culmination
Is that simple explanation
For my insubordination
Toward New Year’s resolutions
I don’t wanna!
