Sorry won’t do it

You can’t always say you’re sorry
When you want to say you’re sorry
It’s like bailing out a boat
That’s always sunk
So you sulk in a corner
Maybe even suck your thumb
Kicking yourself for the way you’ve acted
Unable even to convince yourself
About it never happening again,
Aching over the details of it
Staggering more under the guilt
Than the load of booze
You used to get there
Bailing out this sinking tub
With a thimble
As the sea pours in to drown you
Going down, more than just
For the third time
And knowing no matter
How many times you say you’re sorry
You’re still sunk.
