Happy New Year?

They say “Happy New Year!”

but what does that mean?

It’s just another day;

the same old scene.

There is no ship

coming on the next wave.

There is no hope

to improve or save.

Why call it happy?

It is just another day.

Why celebrate

this routinely old way?

A new year?

Big deal.

A new start?

Not real.

“Happy New Year,”

I say to you

only because it

is polite to do.
