a brand new year

pour a tall glass of
something strong

drink to the promise
of a brand new year

or drink to forget
all the chances lost

maybe hope will
win this battle

the bubbly brunette
catches your eye

and trust me that's
the alcohol talking
when you get up
and boldly go to
start this year
unlike all the
others

don't worry my
friend

you won't be the
only one she turns
away this evening

only fools believe
anything changes
when the ball drops
