An Alcoholic's Resolution

Some fun in Ottava Rima for New Year's. Apologies to George.

I want a beer: oh, an uncommon want,
  When every New Year’s Eve sends forth a slew,
Which I demolish in some favourite haunt,
   To bid the last twelve months a fond adieu;
But when I wake up, wracked with pain, and gaunt,
   I swear I’ll never sup another brew — 
So pounding is my headache New Year’s Day,
That only beer can make it go away...
