    and then he had to stop and think.
    Because although Eating Honey was
    a very good thing to do, there was a

There was a young lady from Hyde
Who ate a green apple and died.
        While her lover lamented
        The apple fermented
And made cider inside her inside.

And a response from Lord Kimberly concening tftd and
    the thoughts in December.

    ... so it is now probably too late to do anything about
    what you have forgotten to do in 2013 -
    your only hope is that everyone will forget as well
    and you can start 2014 with a clean sheet ready
    for whatever new disasters might come your way.

(Suggestion for YOUR New Year's Resolutions)
                (Either because you are late or
                 have already broken the first ones.)

        and then turned them into resolution form and backdated them.
        That was a good feeling.
