The Apologetic Fool - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns
To everyone I did offend,
Who I’ve always thought
Of as dear friends,
I really do not understand,
How such angry words
Came from within this man.
I was on the outside looking in.
I couldn’t believe what came from him.
When I realized that this fool was me,
Acting as an ass for the world to see,
I was forced to humbly bow my head,
To seek forgiveness for the words I’ve said.
If any forgiveness lives inside of you,
I sure could use an ounce or two.
Apologies are what I must give,
As I’ll be sorry for as long as I live.
But since I jumped into this boat,
I’ll float away to a place remote!
I may return to work the plow,
But I must take leave
Of my work for now!
The words I write
Couldn’t be more plain.
This is the example
Set by Herman Cain!
