About the Poem

As a note of disclaimer: this is simply a hound dog husband looking for his wife to forgive his anger - again. I wanted to capture the flavor of the old South and mix it with imagery that would be easy for all married folks (and as a lesson perhaps for the unmarried) to relate.

Sweet Thang

Shufflin in the doorway
hat in hand, silly smile
askin fo forgivness -
Been thinkin all day
at work, couldn't stop
thinkin I shore am sorry.

Canna y'all forgive me,
my sweethart?
I shore be sorry.
Donna know whys
I acted da fool,
iz zit ok, honey?

Man, I be dyin
fo one o your smiles
maybe jus a teensy, baby.
Mama, canna y'all
give a yo Daddy
jus a little sugar?

I be tellin ya
thata itz my own fault
shouldnna hollered at you.
Iz a right sorry now
I a picked y'all some flowers
juz fo you, Mama!

Do y'all think
I coulda juz get a bite
maybe to hold me o're, baby?
Shufflin in the doorway
hat in hand, silly smile
askin fo forgivness.

This nice poem conveys the message of love and apology so well! The Southern cartoonishinesm of words adds a tender treat, giving it color and humanistic power. Well done.
Living in GA I can relate. This is a nice poem.
