Munindra (Munnan) Misra
Just a second insult be a stiff apology,
As the first - when hurt was the party;
Damages for aggrieved no medicine be,
But healing from hurt - the desire only.
Apology an egotism wrong side out surely.
Apology a good way to have last word clearly,
The right sort of people want no apologies,
And the wrong sort take a mean gain cruelly.
A good rule in life - never apologize initially,
Unless accused never defend unnecessarily,
A request or `please' may surmise firstly,
And never apologize unless you feel sorry.
True remorse but never just a regret be -
Over consequence but over motive truly,
Proper action needs no account definitely,
And any excuse but ever ruins an apology.
An apology - but like a lovely flower be,
Changing the clumsiest moment graciously,
An apology - the superglue of life be,
Repairing just about anything resolutely.
