It’s January Again

Composed 12/29/13
Description: My intended entry for a poetry contest at wePoets Show It. The theme of the contest is “New Years Resolutions with humor.”

I originally saw the link to the contest from http://scottishmomus.wordpress.com/. I immediately loved the site, and all the opportunities they give.  So I thought I’d give the contest a shot.  Comedy might not be my best genre, but I could win an Amazon gift card, so why not? I’d do almost anything for an Amazon gift card.

Hope you enjoy!

Oh my, it’s here
That time of year
To dawn sweat pants
Get my butt in gear

Up at eight
To the gym at nine
Feeling great
And looking fine!

Kicking bad habits
Sorry, aspartame
I’m throwing my soda
Down the drain!

Cake, cookies
Chocolate moose
I’ll be trashing
You guys too

I’ll miss you
Ice cream, pumpkin pie
But I’m also kicking
Fat goodbye

So I’m off to strengthen up my core
And empty all the kitchen drawers
Wait
Mom with truffles at the door?
Well
Maybe
Just one more
