Apologies

written by: Gauri Dixit

 

It is all ok
Once you say sorry
Your sensitive expression
Makes even murders ok
Isn't it?

You are pardoned
Oh poet
For atrocities
That will put Hitler to shame
Because you apologize

And what do you do?
You pardon yourself too
The feel good of a good sensitive poem
The aahs, the oohs, the aws and the silent tears
On those you ride out of the blues
Safe

The futility of it all
