Never Say Sorry

December 17, 2018

I am English and so I was taught to say

The word sorry, at least a hundred times a day


It was, I was told, the mark of a man

To apologise, as much as he can


Alas, as I have gotten older

The emotional response to saying sorry, has gotten colder


Before it showed you could take responsibility

But now it means, accepting complete liability


Victimhood has become a cultural norm

To say sorry now comes with the threat of a financial storm


The truth is the world is simply not fair

To say sorry is not to accept the blame, for all of the injustice out there


Sadly these truths have been forgotten by the many

Accepting no blame is the marker of our society


And so, from experience with both friend and foe

Not saying sorry seems to be the way to go


It says a lot about this time

That we have made the word sorry, an actual crime
