viva la revolution

i wrote this in response to a writing prompt on "new year's resolutions - why you make them, why you break them."

Viva la Revolution
A resolution has a weight,
Dragged from place to place,
Implacable as granite girdled round a waist
Or draped like moldering albatrosses,
Displayed for all to see.
Making promises
I break because I can
Wastes time I don't have.
But substitute
One single little letter –
That makes a change I can
Wholeheartedly embrace –
Give me my “New Year’s revolutions" -
Isn’t change what resolutions are about?

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
