Auld Lang Syne

New Year.
Slate clear.
Hog wash
Or Hogmanay.
Well-placed opportunity
For a public holiday.
It’s only right that old acquaintance
Shouldn’t be forgot:
In fact, around this time of year
I think about them quite a lot.
Though arguably the best part’s
The chance of a fresh start,
With resolutions piled high
Duty bound to go awry…
The only way is forward
With no assurance of reward,
In itself a simple way
To avoid disappointment
I would say.
The hopes and fears
Of all the years
Are too much of a grind
So polish up your optimism
-Leave your burdens far behind.
