THIS YEAR

This year, I resolve
to give my inner curmudgeon
freer rein.

This year, I will throw more
rocks through windows.

This year, I will read less
bad poetry, unless it is written
by pretty girls.

This year, I resolve
to tell more interesting lies
about myself.

This year I will revisit
Timbuktu.

This year, I resolve
to drink even more coffee.
I can sleep in ‘07.

This year, I resolve
to become more famous
than you.

This was great, especially the line about bad poetry by pretty girls, lol.

I'm partial to that last stanza, :D
