“Let bygones be bygones” –

The past be the past –

Our disgruntled feelings –

Really shouldn’t last.


“Let bygones be bygones,” –

Is easy to say,

But when your spirit is broken –

You can’t see it that way.


“Let bygones be bygones”

Those little quips and slights,

That cut to the bone –

And turned joy into ice.


“Let bygones be bygones,”

I hear you say –

“I did those things to you –

When we were children at play.”


“Let bygones be bygones” –

How things now have changed –

I’m sorry Mr. Wilson,

Your loan can’t be arranged.
