For Old Time's Sake: A Saturday Centus

Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus challenges us to write a piece within 100 words. This week's prompt is bolded below. Please visit other offerings here, and have a safe and happy New Year's 2012!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


FOR OLD TIME'S SAKE


Resolution schmezolution

A year defined by destitution

Across the globe we witnessed strife

When will we learn to cherish life?

The i’s not capped with Pod or Pad

And dieting just drives us mad

We reach for more to sate the greed

When food and shelter’s all we need

So let’s be glad the year is gone

While we strive to mouth ye Auld Lang song

A new start is what the world needs

There’s just one thing I must concede:

I make no lists, for old time’s sake

And won’t scale down cocoa intake!



Thanks to all my sweet, funny, loyal followers of Life by Chocolate. 

HAVE A SAFE, WARM NEW YEAR’S AND A PEACEFUL 2012!

  1. A great way to end the year, Robyn! And no way you could scale back the chocolate.
    Happy New Year, my friend!

  2. Scaling back on chocolate next year would be more bitter than sweet. With the Mayan calendar ending I want to face the end, if that should be the case, with a circle of chocolate on my mouth. Happy New Year.

  14. A great rhyme to end the year
    Giving 2011 a farwell cheer
    Without much cheer to be had
    As it wasn't the greatest in our earthly pad
    But oh well
    And what the hell
    On with the show
    As we reap what we sow

    This line was brilliant: The i’s not capped with Pod or Pad
