In a world where being inarticulate
means you know that what you said
was not at all what you meant,
which you would never say, anyway,
it is wisest to never apologise
for all the slips of tongue and brain
that so caused offence,
assume your forgiveness instead.
And if you knew
who to apologise to
you have forgotten
what you were meant
to apologise for.
The solution that is for best,
Is the one that takes the matter
out of your hands
-it is the have friends
who forgive you, unasked,
and don't ever mention it.
