AFTER YOU SAY YOU’RE SORRY

YOU'RE SORRY

AFTER YOU SAY YOU’RE SORRY

When an apology

Is evasive tautology

Like belief in Scientology

Or even like numerology;

A quick self-archeology

Reveals defective psychology.

 

You’re screwed up in the head

You should have stayed in bed

Instead of coming around me

With some pretended litany,

That seeks to confuse,

At least to excuse

Your flight from reason

Into a full season

Of you as a tourist in reality

Peddling your duality.

 

If you’d come here honestly

Just to plead insanity

You would have possibly

Managed to impress me.

Instead you made up stories

Of days of former glories

And the fortunes of war

You never saw before.

In your Monday quarterbacking

Some verity is severely lacking.

 

When an apology

Is evasive tautology

Like belief in Scientology

Or even like numerology;

A quick self-archeology

Reveals defective psychology.

 

So, please take your fairy tales

And ring up no-sale

On your internal cash register;

Your win-lose mental ledger,

Because you haven’t done jack

To make me want you back

Inside my precious regard

That you missed by a yard.

Don’t even try

To start to cry.

 

When an apology

Is evasive tautology

Like belief in Scientology

Or even like numerology;

A quick self-archeology

Reveals defective psychology.
