New Year’s Revolution?
New Year’s resolutions are already
Withering like forgotten Christmas wreathes
Left on rarely opened doors. This world seethes
With discontents; the News being a steady
Litany of wars and prospects of wars,
Diseases, and those too poor for medicine,
Sad-eyed children too bloated or too thin
From want of food, and empty shelves in stores.
All the while, billionaires, trillionaires,
Accounting for so few, still demonstrate
There’s plenty enough, that it is not fate
But choice as to who might access the world’s wares.
Nothing’s resolved without resolution
To elect the common weal solution.
