December 31st 2013 New Years Eve. Another comes sliding through the night Sneaking into my life to mark more failure. How many have I endured, all good, all bad. Resolutions proudly taken to be shattered Because I am human flesh Destined to fail dismally. The millennium was special, An exclamation mark on centuries past Looking forward to a new beginning Of hope and peace and…… I watched it die. We let it die. Sat down like directors without control Letting the play control the actors The players make up lines, Anarchy, complete fucking anarchy Pointless and yes, Suicidal. Three Thousand, the next Beyond my touch or imagination thankfully Four or five generations removed From my ability to screw it up. Time enough perhaps to be forgotten Erased from sentient fact or memory Like the dark ages.
