Thoughts on Leaving 2013 for 2014

Dentist at eleven
teeth are jumping ship
Still, better a broken tooth
than a fractured hip
Young men have dreams
that take them through the day
Old men make bargains
to keep the devil at bay
Forget the wealth
I'll take the health
for those I know and love
And that includes a dog named Sam
Who makes me better than I am
Together we face the coming year
With J and N and C
and E&Z and brilliant V
All members of my family*
Damn but I'm lucky to be me
