Not This New Year …

The season for giving’s soon over
Like ferries departing from Dover
Some boats find Ostend
And we find our end
Is also not furnished with clover!

Each New Year’s the same as the last
With troubles it gained from it’s past
Some daft politician
Will make it his mission
To hide all our woes, though they’re vast

But some men aren’t fooled by these lies
No matter what methods he tries
When this trend starts spreading
Perhaps we’ll start heading
For better days lead by the wise!
