Poetry – "Sorry!" #NaPoWriMo Day 20

Day 20:





Sorry!
by Jennifer Patino


Sorry!

Revenge was the object
How many times
can I screw the
people I love over
with no repercussions?

I’ve seen families
torn apart in one
night and friends
becoming enemies,
becoming friends
and enemies
and back and
forth again

Sorry!

I can tell by
your smirk that
you aren’t   You’re
keeping me from
home to be a champion

(This isn’t too far off from real life)

Sorry!

A race to defend
and pretend
that forgiveness
comes easily
but the luck
of the reshuffled
deck denies
everything
and gives

no sincere apology

Author’s Note: Today’s optional prompt was to write a piece about a sport or game. I chose, Sorry!, my favorite board game. Thanks so much for reading!
