Sorry

or Danny Boy’s Return

Tall and gaunt with sunken eyes and wispy red grey hair

Face contorted and angry

Embittered by the acrid smoke from inner embers of defeat and disappointment

He shambles along to his end, snarling getoutof myway,

Despite the sympathetic nods and smiles who remember his glories,

Followed by the serene, calm ageless girl,

Who will tend his grave and soothe his soul.
