Welcoming The New Year

You slip up on me
stealthy as south wind.
Got a handful of promises
that glitter and shine.

But, behind your back
you're holding a sack
of fuckin' growth opportunities.

Since I cain't keep you out,
you might as well come in,
but don't go droppin' no balls
or singin' Auld Lang Syne.

Cause behind your back
I know you got a sack
of fuckin' growth opportunities.

Celebrating the New Year with dVerse!

This made me laugh. (Ya just gotta laugh. It feels so good.) Sometimes one doesn't want those 'growth opportunities.' This kind of gift is no gift at all.

Ain't it the truth, that there's no yee-haw without the yee-ouch. Well, trudge the road we must, whistling all the way. May your New Year be happiest for wanting what you have. - Brendan

boo to growth opportunities! wait, i mean yay!

Lolamouse said...

"Growth Opportunity" is just a euphemism for "more work." No thanks! I'm with you, MZ.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I hate growth opportunities too - when do we ever get done growing? she foolishly asks. Grinned my way thru this one, kiddo. Loved it.
