You’ve already found it’s hard to keep
Your New Year resolutions
Too radical by far you think
What’s the alternative solution?
You could abandon all you’ve pledged
No need for it to happen
Who cares about a little drink?
Just jump down off the wagon
But a coward you don’t want to be
Lacking in backbone
So what’s the choice, let’s not delay
Take action, don’t postpone
You’ve promised to make changes
Bad habits to remove
A better self, a nicer me
Would all the world approve
Perhaps a lot less painful
A less severe critique
A wee minor adjustment
What we all call a tweak!
For these we don’t need a therapist
On the couch our souls unburden
To fill our minds with cleansing thoughts
The latest psycho jargon
So whatever in your life that ails
Just tickle or fine tune
Without doubt this simple act
Will be a blessing and a boon
Cheap at the price, it does the trick
Involves no complex treatment
Decide what in your life to change
And get on with the tweakment!
