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
