The Calendar Goes In Circles

Folder: 
Thought For Food

new year has come
twenty eleven
waiting for twenty twelve
talking like twenty ten

Resolutions,
mostly which will fail,
some probably should,
but none the less
Resolutions,
mostly which will fail,
signaled from our lips
signaled from our lips
by a calendar,
not by our urgent desire

and that's why january first won't change a thing

just like you can vote for the word change,
but have you gone and changed your life yet?
just like you can tear down an old flag,
but have you gone and changed the colors?

new years has come
twenty something's
wanting for eighteen's tongues
talking like burial

Resolutions,
mostly which will fail,
some certainly should,
but none the less

you know why january first won't change a thing

just like you can vote for the word change,
but have you gone and changed your ways yet?
just like you can tear down former flag,
but have you gone and changed the colors?
have you gone and changed the colors?
the calendar goes in circles
