Resolutions 2018

This Year It's all about me

I'll use sleight of hand
Be all smoke and mirrors
Confess everything
Reveal nothing at all

I'll be all misdirection
In the way the cards fall
Be honestly devious
Mischievous and raw

I resolve to be all stuff and nonsense
Don't trust me one bit
I'll aspire to be lascivious
And really be lovin' it

I'm gonna' gain as much weight as I can
Eat bacon for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Gonna' gobble sugar (as much as I can stand)
Not gonna' care anymore about gettin' thinner

This year is gonna' be all about me
I'll not have many more I fear
And If nothin' else…It's gonna be
A very happy New Year
