Monday After New Year

Monday after New Year
I’d say one of the busiest of them all,
Resolutions freshly made, suddenly seem to appear,
Will they last or will they fall?

Normally all too readily,
We get back into old routines.
But perhaps this year we’ll steadily,
From old ways gradually wean.

Perhaps COVID will change things,
For this year at least.
Restrictions having clipped our wings,
And normality somewhat ceased.

Perhaps the break from normal,
Helps people to take stock.
With things being all a little less formal,
New habits may load and lock.

So as Monday After New Year,
Spells out ‘many’ as a mnemonic.
Perhaps this year many changes will last,
At last the day may not be ironic!
