Happy New Year!!


What are you New Year's Resolutions?

My New Year's Resolutions
    I will not throw the cat out the window
    Or put a frog in my sister's bed
    I will not tie my brother's shoelaces together
    Nor jump from the roof of Dad's shed
    I shall remember my aunt's next birthday
    And tidy my room once a week
    I'll not moan at Mum's cooking (Ugh! fish fingers again!)
    Nor give her any more of my cheek.
    I will not pick my nose if I can help it
    I shall fold up my clothes, comb my hair,
    I will say please and thank you (even when I don't mean it)
    And never spit or shout or even swear.
    I shall write each day in my diary
    Try my hardest to be helpful at school
    I shall help old ladies cross roads (even if they don't want to)
    And when others are rude I'll stay cool.
    I'll go to bed with the owls and be up with the larks
    And close every door behind me
    I shall squeeze from the bottom of every toothpaste tube
    And stay where trouble can't find me.
    I shall start again, turn over a new leaf,
    leave my bad old ways forever
    shall I start them this year, or next year
    shall I sometime, or .....?
