via Daily Prompt: Tardy


It was too late
She said I was tardy
She told me to leave
I said I was sorry.

She said she was tired
Of my lies and excuses
She wanted more
She said I was useless.

She was so angry
I put my head down
Belittled and beaten
My tail on the ground.

I felt really bad
Didn’t know what to do
Should’a treated her better
And now we are through.

Won’t you reconsider
I’ll change my ways
Please let me prove it
Please let me stay.

She said, “Are you kidding?
Think I’m out of my mind?
Pack up your bags
You’re wasting my time”.

There were no second chances
No room for remorse
She changed the locks
Then filed for divorce.
