A Half-Apology

Yesterday's prompt on PAD challenge was; write a forgiveness poem.
Here is a long over-due one to my family and friends!

(a poet's song to an almost-poem)😂

 

I'll ask for your forgiveness in advance
Because I know I will not change my ways
So if you would be good, could you perchance
Forgive my foible-garbled Poem-craze? 

I cannot change just for the sake of peace 
I'd rather look for new ways to impress
The whisper of a picture to the crease
That fills the face with poem-happiness

So, I'll ask your forgiveness in advance
And shake the poem-tree for all I'm worth
Who knows what waits in ink rhythm-and-dance
To fill your somber stance with poem-mirth

This is only a half-apology
Please excuse the audacity of it
For I am asking you to forgive me
For Something I do not intend to quit
