Each Year We Make Resolutions

Each year we make resolutions
Which we seldom implement
Cos along the way solutions
To our blues we fail to cement.

Each year we pledge to improve
The way we think, act and do
And yet each December we fail to prove
That to our resolutions we remain true.

Each year we brag
About ambitious plans we create
From our lives to remove the snag
Into which we run as mediocrity and hypocrisy our lives permeate.

Each year with our eyes wide open
We pray to love our neighbor
As we scribble with our red pen
Hatred and malice never harbor.
