    New Year's Resolutions

    Last year I did some rotten things.
    This year I will be better.
    Here are some resolutions
    I will follow to the letter:
    I won’t make dumb excuses
    when my homework isn’t done;
    when the truth is that I did no work
    ’cause I was having fun.
    I won’t fly paper airplanes
    when the teacher isn’t looking.
    I won’t sneak in the kitchen
    just to taste what they are cooking.
    I will not twist the silverware
    to see how far it bends.
    I will not take the candy bars
    from lunch bags of my friends.
    I will not skateboard down the hall
    or skateboard down the stairs.
    I won’t run over teachers,
    and I won’t crash into chairs.
    I will not do these rotten things;
    my heart is full of sorrow.
    But I have got some brand-new tricks
    to try in school tomorrow.

    New Year's Resolutions, Bruce Lansky
