Unrepentant

Unrepentant

Oh, no! Have I insulted “Mad Dog” Mattis?
I guess that I’m in real big trouble, right?
Syllables of contempt I offered gratis.
If he takes note, he’ll make me see the light.
A mad dog, you can bet, is full of fight.
The hydrophobic spittle on his chin
Is not, as I’ve suggested, from a night
Of oral work on organs thick and thin.
Instead, it indicates the strength to win
Against such silly satirists as me.
I must express repentance for the sin
Of anti-Jimmy-Mattis blasphemy.
However, to repent I lack the art:
More laughter now is rising in my heart.
