Poem #5

The A in DNA stands for apology.

White people will give a pass to astrology

But not to that.

That confuses me because I love a good sorry;

I’m a contrition addict, and sometimes my sorries

Contradict their surroundings.

I apologise for emails

Both pragmatic and necessary.

And I apologise to 4×4 drivers

When I semi-run on zebra skins.

 

Oh, sorry: the DN stands for Deoxyribonucleic.
