Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were Apologise, Derelict and Medicate.
Save Your Breath
Don’t apologise for base rudeness—
Each day you matter less and less.
I’ll neither retreat from the plain
Nor medicate away my pain
Life is better, I must profess,
Protected from your bitchiness
By friends who helped me reassess—
As I don’t expect any change
Any remorse will not impress
I’d be derelict to acquiesce
And put it all in place again.
As you deserve but scant disdain,
And I’m not about to reassess:
