I've made a decision, a drastic solution So I don’t have to make a New Year’s resolution This year I’ve decided to become a nun… My ‘habit’ will shield my head from the sun I will resolve to join a silent order Mother Superior will act as my warder I’ll give up chocolate and drinking and smoking Hey poetry souper’s, you know I’m just joking! For many years I have not celebrated New Year So whilst others party and whoop and they cheer I’ll wear my flannel gown and go early to bed There I’ll write poems until sleep fills my head Good luck if you give up drinking or start a diet On New Year’s resolutions I resolve to stay quiet! Happy New Year to everyone at poetry soup Enjoy your holiday and in 2018 we’ll regroup Update for New Year Contest Sponsored by Janice Canerdy 12~22~15

I don't make resolutions Andrea so I thought out of the box a bit- I am past caring about placing in contests as long as the poem gets read that is the important thing to me , it always has been and always will - a win is a bonus and a way of getting extra exposure to our poems - I know we both have our own 'foible' of getting so many comments on our existing poems and not flooding the site with poems hardly anyone reads - each to their own I guess:-) hugs Jan xx
