No. 2000 of #2000Seventeen (#2000Haiku)

Two thousand haiku
Might have plumbed profundities
Good thing I was here!

Sleeves Rolled / Knuckles Cracked

Opportunities await
For those who act! It’s not too late
To stamp RESOLVED on this year’s set
Of resolutions. Finished yet?
I’m not, and though the time is fleeting
And the sheep of sleep are bleating,
Summoning the year to rest,
I’m not prepared to tank the test
Or take the Incomplete. There’s time!
I’ll grant, there’s not a lot, but I’m
Determined not to waste a minute
More before I fin- begin it:
Fifty weeks (and change) have passed,
But now I’m focusing at last!
I’ll end December with a win!
Now, what did I resolve, again?

Ready To Rumble

That sense of having too much stuff’s
Relieved by formal fisticuffs
So grab your gloves and stand up tall
To bash away the Bacchanal!
Ticked every wishbox on your list?
Then drop your guard and kiss the fist
Of one equally fortunate,
But try to give as well as get
That they may belt their guilt away
Beside you. Happy Boxing Day!
