New Year

New Year’s Resolutions By Rick Rucker This year, instead of cutting fat, I think I’m going to aerobicize my cat, When I hear the revelers’ sounds, I can be happy for her lost pounds. I think this might become a craze, Sweep the nation in a few days! No more loss, and privation, Finally, a happy, guilt free nation! Sort of like a whipping boy, Him with suffering, you with JOY! I’m going to have to look around, What can I take from my hound? Something will occur to me, This year, a better dog he’ll be! People are funny when you deprive your kids, Boy, they really flip their lids! I guess I’ll have to stick to pets, They seem, by far, the safer bets!
