The New Year

The new year is here 
The people ar going 
gaga and gay.
Ask them why they 
almost go insane
Over the year that has 
come but not to stay.

They tell you it's an 
avenue to celebrate
And be merry cos they 
are alive.
But I tell you friend, it 
is not so adequate
To rejoice and injure 
yourself in the frenetic 

But the year is an 
To review the events 
that are past
And ponder on ways to 
improve your community
Before events 
happening in it make 
you look aghast!

The new year is not 
one for frenzied beats
But one to bring out 
vibrant thoughts from 
the streets!
