So I found this book of false apology poems:
Apparently, William Carlos Williams wrote this poem to his wife after eating the plums she was so looking forward to.
Basically the first documented #sorrynotsorry poem! :) This author decided to write a few more.
So I asked the kids to try their hand at their own poems, saying sorry but not really. This was challenging for many of them.
Sorry I ate your jellybeans but they tasted like underwear.
Is it too late to say sorry? Yes it is.
I'm sorry but I don't mean it.
I'm sorry I ate your food, but I liked it.
I'm sorry I put pie in your face, but you make me so mad!
I'm sorry that I stole your toy, you're the best.
