December, remember,

is one month away


from a new year


on New Year’s Day.


What to Recant?

What to want?

What to give up, but can’t?


From the lists of the Shain’t,

    to the end of next Lint,


some will be getting,

    whilst some, giving up.


Know this, 

    old Hot Shot:

Quitting, I can’t.


Whether I can, on that 

    which I had ought,


Neither, I am, 

    that which I’m not.
