I woke to 2015 with such joy
My dog jumping on my bed with her favourite toy
4am, you’ve got to be joking!
But with my dog, there is no room for moping
Bleary- eyed I saw the outline of her black shape
2015 – Oh this year is going to be just great!
I patted her, in all her favourite places
As I wished peace, yes, to all the world’s races.
