A Little Alliterative Commentary on Idiotic Idioms

All Litter Rationalized
By Susan L. Lipson

“My bad!” they say,
Moralizing minor mistakes,
Like leaving litter lying,
Forgetting familiar faces,
Dripping dirty dishwater,
Clumsily creating clutter,
Erroneously erasing email—
Instilling immorality in innocent interactions
by saying, “My bad.”

Whatever happened to “Oops—sorry”?
