It's A New Year, Whoopdi Friggin Doo I Fear!

A new year is here, all know that after many a cheer, but is it time to kick it into gear or just run away in fear? I guess we shall see as a little rant is done by me.


 Scream and shout,
Bounce like a trout.
One that's on land.
The new year is grand.

A time for change,
A time to rearrange.
A time for this or that,
A time when pffft comes from the cat.

But that we know already.
The cat states that steady.
Yet with one near,
Do you cheer or run in fear?

Fear your end is near.
Could croak after another beer.
That would surely suck.
Or maybe you fear luck.

Maybe you give it a cheer.
All will call you dear.
Wouldn't that be great?
Nah, not a deary fate.

So fear or cheer?
Both can kick things into gear.
Which one do you choose?
Time for me to abuse.

Neither one!
Screw either being spun.
New year does nothing at all.
Just another day added to the wall.

Won't magically find a new way.
Won't magically sail across the bay.
Won't magically get pay.
Won't magically go astray.

You will do what you will.
You will get your fill.
There is no magic pill,
And no magic date that fits the bill.

The new year is like a fart.
It is not some kind of fresh start.
It passes like any other one does.
You create your own fear, cheer or buzz.

What? The cat just likes to drive that home at his hut. The new year is like a fart. Hmmm may get that lamented at my cart. It builds up and then blows away, you do the same as you do any other day. You want something done and your insecurity to go away. Do it on any single day. Whether it is March or November that comes to pass. New Year's is just as magical as a fart from my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

    1. They can get a fill
      And turn rather ill
      In need of a pill
      When the day is nil

  2. That's why I don't make resolutions. If I want to change something, I'll just do it.

  3. Days are numbered one at a time
    Name the date and write a rhyme
    Should we expect one day to be greater
    Perhaps it's now or maybe it's later

  4. So true with each new year
    almost like the old one left behinbd
    but maybe we can learn something
    and try to treat each other more kind.

  7. The new year ... is not some kind of fresh start. Are you kidding. It's a fresh start to do the same things you've done before (lol).

  8. A new year a new way
    it's the same as other days
    a promise is made
    but then quickly fades
    until it's forgotten
    and you feel rotten
    so don't bother to make
    the resolution for goodness sake!

    Oh, and the cat says pfft every day!!

  16. You make me smile, Yes, it's just another day in the end. What's different is our mindset. If someone's been in a rut, it can be the needed motivation to make some changes.

  19. 2015? Already? Somehow the passing of the years really don't thrill me. It's not the age thing I don't think. It is the crazies on the other side of the world.

  20. Most interesting advice from the cat this New Year
    I give the advice (not the year) a great big cheer
    You make your own attitude and way all around
    I needed to hear this, do that you astound?

  23. No need to sneer at the brand new year.
    It serves a purpose, I hold dear.
    While I have to agree, it's just one more day.
    I'm always up for an excuse to play.
    So get out your noisemaker and lift your glass
    before twenty-fifteen kicks us in the ass.
