Guilty

There comes a time

When you realize

That you are guilty

Of giving people more

Credit for intelligence, common

Sense and general ethics

Than they deserve,

You’ll recognize

The time

As you listen to

Hollow apologies

And smell the bullshit theory

Of do whatever and ask for forgiveness

Later.
