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
