Regret Or Champagne - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No time is better,
Than the time right now we are in.
Any thought that strays
From a negative place yesterday...
Why do you insist,
Inviting it to make visits to sit?
You know it's going to accept...
Since a positive attitude you seem to reject,
Without regret or champagne to offer.
You go right ahead and whine!
Pass me that bottle...
I have a toast to make.
