Poet's Corner: An Apology

An Apology

Forgive me
for backing over
and smashing
your red wheelbarrow.

It was raining
and the rear wiper
does not work on
my new plum-colored SUV.

I am also sorry
about the white
chickens.

F. J. Bergmann

I wasn't going to post a poem today (for reasons which will become clear tomorrow) but I was flipping through a book of poetry on my break and ran across this little gem, and I couldn't resist.
