As 2017 draws to a close,
there’s less to thank for,
much less to lose,
life is much more unsure

A year has gone in all our lives,
now we stop and ponder why,
beneath all those sugary lies,
why we often seldom try

Not today, but tomorrow,
shall we make vows anew,
to hamper sorrow,
to make merry brew

I wish you all,
I wish you well,
the mighty may fall,
but they are seldom fell

Happy new year 2018!
