Sorry

Sorry

Please forgive us should You find this insolent
Or see no tears we shed after the latest trick of Yours
But writhing inside, we have been guessing the motive
Eeach time one disaster rallies against another;
Guess we should know better that we should know better
Dumbstruck by quakes and tsunamis we wish to arrive
At the meaning of Mother Nature’s messages
Though we know we’d better take precautionary measures
Whilst in the midst of the whirlwind of political rhetorics
Filthy conglomerates sneer and chuckle with each drop
Of the mud bursting from their oil pipes in East Java
Guess we should know better that they aren’t sorry



Poem Sorry - Sukasah Syahdan
