Ring Clear With New Here?

 

New day, new year.
Things are so clear.
Everything is new.
Are you fooling you?

New date, new day.
New is here to stay.
Same insecurities are screening.
Has new lost its meaning?

Insecurities still stuck.
What the fluck?
It's all new.
Whoops, fooled you.

Old is new.
Got a clue?
New is old.
You've been told.

Change the view.
No longer blue.
Or view the change.
Mind just rearrange?

Mutter and mumble.
Maybe throw in a grumble.
Just don't stumble.
That won't leave you humble.

Stubbed your toe.
Fluck may show.
Or would that be tell?
What the hell.

Look, it can move.
Not stuck in a groove.
So you move it aside.
Toes no longer have to hide.

Old is now new.
New to old came due.
You solved the case.
No magic embrace.

Move and lifted.
Toe stubbing no longer gifted.
You put in the work.
Now that's a new perk.

--------------------------------------

Oh, and an IWSG announcement too. The winners of the next anthology have come due.
Congrats to all at their hall.

Tick Tock: A Stitch in Crime


Special Mention:


--------------------------------------

Don't you love not stubbing your toe? Sure can bring a fluckity fluck show. Can change and rearrange the insecurities away too. Some may take a bit more heavy lifting from you. But it can be done. Then back to the fun. Aren't I a wise cat? Or maybe just out to lunch where I'm at. Speaking of which I'll go chew some grass. I'm sure it is fresher than this so-called new year for my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  11. Why am I always running into that darned rhyming cat?

  13. Even the air of January smells new! I love new. Out with the old; in with the new. I may even go find me a new cat or a new hat. I could always use a new bat. Kicking up my heels and squeeing at 2018!

  17. Well, it may be a NEW year, but I'm still OLD. :) And I still stub my darned toes, too. I break toes as often as other people break their fingernails.

    Congratulations to all of the writers selected for the next IWSG anthology! Should be another terrific book.

  19. New versus old, huh? Yeah, it's a new year, but I'm afraid we're going to be dealing with the same old shit!

    not enough hours in a day, it's true

  29. Maybe the 'new year' is what has me wanting to rearrange my house. The kitchen specifically. And I'd love to rearrange some words on a document and make it into a great story.

  31. I don't think "new" has lost its meaning, but I think people should be aware they don't have to wait for the beginning of the year to start over in an area.
