Fine, I’m sorry I punched you
hard in the eye just now.
But you walked in front of my fist-
What did you expect?
I’m also sorry for pouring gallons of oil,
and hectares of plastic into the oceans,
transforming the water into poison.
But, really, the fish were too stupid
to protest or even walk on land.
So in a way it’s their fault.
And yes, I’m sorry for setting up
a national surveillance network of
cameras, motion sensors, microphones
thermal imagers, informants and secret police.
to watch your every move from the morning
to when your close your eyes, ‘alone’ in bed.
But really if you had nothing to hide
there is no problem. Why be annoyed?
I’m sorry if you were offended by my actions.
