My New Years Resolutions Have Been So Great

My resolutions have been so great, so terrific, and terribly nice.
I have liked them down to my toes, the first was to be a cop of vice.
I wanted a fire truck, and clang the bell, and drive myself to the Y
Where I would swim sixteen miles a day, and end up incredibly fly.

The cops would not take me as I was one month and six days too old.
So I applied to be a Disc Jockey, so brassy, and cute and bold.
They had advertised for an enthusiastic, talker, and a go-getter, 
This resolution now off my list, because I could not get a sitter.

I resolved to see my best friends once a week for coffee and a snack.
But out of the six I called and texted, only one called back.
She said, my resolution is to stay home and eat healthy this year.
A veggie meal which I had to invite myself to was my greatest fear.

I would stop spending excessive money, stay away from the mall.
I disposed of this resolution as my only hobby is shopping after all
As my friend, I must let you know, in case it is not decidedly clear 
This year's resolutions are the exact same ones I had last year.

There is nothing like a little inebriation to bring out the imagination and the grand ideas. I like this comment, because of the sheer honesty of it, and the integrity in the honesty of it. Thank you John!

I never make resolutions; when I did, I couldn't seem to keep them so, now I just enjoy the year.

I used to make them. Gave it up years ago, and so happy about it. Crazy happy really.

I do not have them any more, but there was a writing prompt on another site, and I could not resist throwing something into the contest. It was very specific - 16 lines, four stanzas, and the poem had to rhyme.
