I'm So Sorry

As much as we like to hear it, as much we don’t — yes, those words, “I’m so sorry,”
Our dislike of them being because of their need, occurring too frequently,
If you get what I mean — oh, that too oft repeated scene — that shouldn’t be so,
But yes, there they go again, another injury, when better they should know.

Yes, “sorry” is all very well, but when it keeps needing to be said, oh dear,
It can go from being appreciated to something we’d rather not hear,
And I meaning, why another injury? How genuine were they before?
All why that “sorry” sometimes doesn’t mean much, and becomes like a squeaky door.
