January 2020 writers cramp contest Prompt waking up after celebration of New Years.
Prompt: It's a brand new year and, in popular imagination anyway, a brand new decade. Write a story or poem about someone who had grand plans for themselves for the new year, but ended up falling asleep on New Years Day and waking up on January 4.
by Lisa Noe
I partied hardily on New Year's eve,
woke up with vomit on my sleeve.
I can't recall what all transpired,
but boy I fell asleep, I sure was tired.
I celebrated the new year, besides that a new decade.
I had friends, a big party, oh the plans we made.
we went on a beer run,
oh what joyous fun.
I slept so peacefully for three whole days
When I awoke it was January fourth, oh how I prayed.
I had the worst hangover, a headache so large.
next year I'll stay home and not visit that party barge.
Authors Note: this little poem is certainly fiction, as I don't drink.
