calling your bluff

what is this nonsense heard now?
you and your repeated mumbling
from both sides of your mouth
offering hollow apologies
to an already abandoned cause
empty words and posturing gestures
cannot mend a shattered foundation
and you have nothing solid
nothing true
nothing in good faith to contribute
unless remorse comes from the internal
and on the deepest level
until you truly understand
not only what it is you regret
but why you were actually wrong
it can only be another vain attempt
(take that word and define it any way you like)
as with each and every other time
you've done as little as you possibly could
you're just putting another bandaid
on a fatally severed limb
and, as usual, calling it good
