The Ox pulls father time's cart
into another year
Santa has gone to the beach house with Ms. Claus
and the reindeer are at the spa
I'm in my warm coat gloves and boots getting
my exercise by shoveling the driveway instead of
walking my two miles but you do what you've got to do.
The year has begun cold
all white and shiny like the newborn child of storied legend
Maybe this year will make my dreams come true
Happy new year !
see you next week!
