Cup of Kindness

Form: Ballad Stanzas

As this old year begins its end
we share a glass of season’s drink
to toast the future we intend
before the final seconds sink.

Embracing arms and kisses share
the cup of kindness and a song
the new year seen so we can dare
to change the ways we feel are wrong.

Inhale the smoke, a final drag
indulge our greed before we slim
the oaths we resolutely tag
in drunken haze and Rabbie’s hymn.

To all my friends come share a dram
and let me wish you a bright year
a whiskey or tequila slam
to start the new with hope and cheer
