"A Day Late" -- April 8, #NationalPoetryMonth


A Day Late


We meant no harm showing up too late.

You can't blame us. We had no idea.

No one could've seen this coming.


We saw it coming. We told you.


Well, you should've been clearer.

You should've been louder.

You should've been smarter.


Are you saying it is our fault?


Well it certainly isn't our fault.

We took all the necessary precautions.

You should've done what we did.


We have no money. No power. No voice.


Whose fault is that?


Wait. You said you took precautions...


*tick*tock*tick*tock*tick*tock


The fact is, we did see it coming.

We've done tremendously.

It's been very good. Very good.


So what you're saying is, you just didn't give a shit?


*tick*tock*tick*tock*tick*tock


We've done tremendously.

It's been very good. Very good.

No one could've seen this coming.
