Alopogize


I uh-loh-puh-jized to my mommy.
Then alopogized to my daddy.
But from both of them,
I got no acknowledgement for my alopogy.


I alopogized to my teacher,
And then to my preacher.
But from both of them,
I got no acknowledgement for my alopogy.


I turned to the Internet,
I spelled alogopy.
A word I never knew,
Popped out at me.


So I screamed and yelled,
To all concerned,
'I meant apology,
Apology,
Apology! '

And all four said,
'I apologize for not understanding you.

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
