>> writing >> poetry >> Happy New Year

As an avid fan of The Emporer's New Groove, I make references to it often in day-to-day communication.

On New Year's Day 2020 at about 12:43 AM, my wife sent a message to extended family that said, "Happy happy new year!"

My brain immediately leapt to the diner birthday song from the aforementioned film, and this spilled out.

A happy happy New Year
From both of us to yoooou
We wish it were not midnight
So we could party too.

A happy happy New Year
May all your dreams come true
Now go crash straight into your bed
And don't get up till two.
