Sorry to those of you who saw this photo and/or poem already (on facebook and/or in years past). I'm reposting for old time's sake (that is, because I don't have anything else ready). Have a wonderfully resolution-free 2014.
Photo by my friend, Rita Scott, posted without Spice Girl Dope's permission. [Dope was trying to get her Robyn on. I know, right?]
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!
