So we enter a new year, expectations abound
The day broke and 'fresh' people peered around
Full of hope and vibrant glee
Smiling faces anxious to see
Indeed they should stare, indeed they should gape
For the new year shall turn a prune into a grape!
It shall turn charcoal to wood and drive crime from your hood!
Even Harry Potter says the new year is good
It shall raise its hands and say aloud
Let world peace in every corner be found!
You stand, however in unfortunate expectation
Suffering from a severe case of new year mental masturbation
Believing to the end that all shall be well
Believing that new year shall cast that 'all shall be well' spell
The very same one that 2010 cast
Oh really? Today, you say thats all in the past
The truth be told, the truth is here
There should be no expectations for the new year
For what was Saturday is now Sunday
You still shall wake up and go to work on a Monday
Your bills will still come and you shall still pay
And you still will be broke a week from payday
Your life last year, that life remains
Life goes; on very little has changed
