Poetry – Dear Mrs Planet – a Third appeal

This is the third one of my ‘sorry’ letters to Mrs Planet – the pleading of a recalcitrant child.

I’m not sure which one works best – what do you think?


Dear Mrs Planet – a Third appeal


Dear Mrs Planet

Thank you for your hospitality.

I’m really sorry that some of my fellows

Did not behave responsibly.

Please do not blame me.


I hope you will be able

To repair the damage done.

But, know we are not all the same,

Please don’t blame everyone.

Some of us are fun.


We’ll do everything we can

To make amends for the greed junkies.

We’re so embarrassed

By the overgrown monkeys

Who treat us like flunkies.


So Mrs Planet

Can you just see your way

To forgive us

And allow us to stay.

We promise we won’t get in your way.


Opher – 17.7.2020

I'd like to hear from you...
