I’m Sorry

I am sorry I handed you food and gave a choice between fish and chicken

I am sorry I did not give you a choice of bread and beans like the poor folk eat

I’m sorry that some poor folk don’t eat at all even bread and beans

I’m sorry you complained about the trash can full of food and it’s rotten smell

I am sorry you think this is all a joke

I am sorry you can’t connect with love, peace, humanhood, justice, thought, ME

I am sorry but you ran out of time

I’m sorry I have to tell MY MOTHER AND FATHER as that is why—

I am sorry to say—why I LIGHT ┬ácame to you on Mother Planet

I’m sorry to report you turned away from—and now all is DARK
