Why do New Year's Parties have to last all night?
|Why do New Year's parties have to last all night?
I wonder as I listen to the year's birth song.
Is it to see that the New Year is born aright?
Or just an excuse to party all night long.
What would happen if we went to bed at 10 o'clock?
Would we rip a hole in space and time?
Would novelist be plagued by writer's block?
Would poets forget the use of rhythm and rhyme?
