January blues


January is the visitor, the uninvited guest

Who rocks up to the party and smokes all your cigarettes

January is the black cloud, the dark and gloomy sky

The excuse you use for staying in and tucking into pie

January is the month of a thousand unpaid bills

All coming at once together, enough to give you chills

January, the longest month that ever came to pass

January, hiding Christmas sparkle in the long and muddy grass

January is the person who eats the final piece of cake

It’s the neighbour’s dog barking keeping you awake

January is the gum on the bottom of your shoe

Who makes it hard to walk, like you’re paddling through glue

January is the month of 31 sleepless nights

Of early mornings and darkest days spent putting the world to rights

January is the empty petrol tank on the longest motorway

It’s the scratched CD of your favourite song that just refuses to play

January, like a grumpy toddler in desperate need of a nap

Like jumping off the train and trying to mind the gap

January is a battle it should be just abolished

Maybe we’ll skip to February and have this month demolished.
