Apology poem:

I’m deeply sorry

for making such a mess on the kitchen floor

I decided to make a dozen pancakes, which were sublime

As you can see, I have used a very special kind of flour

The floor is thicky layered in grained dust

That I had spilled over while making these fine, crusty crepes-

As the French would like to call it

I didn’t have time to clean it up

For I have to go to work very early in the morning

But could you do one thing for me?

Be a dear and clean the floor, would you?
