New Year’s Resolution

New Year’s Resolution

Pull the pots and pan from the cabinet
bring the old cowbell down from the attic
find that vuvuzela you bought in 2010
and exercise your lip

The new year’s nearly here

Let’s make some noise tonight
so those lurking demons run in fear
Let’s make such a din
the coronavirus evolves an ear


(For a couple of anticipatory prompts: Din & Celebrate.)

    I had to look up vuvuzela. I knew it was a musical instrument of some sort but didn’t realize how annoying it is! :) Good job on the poem tho.
