I知 Sorry

I知 sorry I hit you,
I kicked you,
I punched you.

I知 sorry I picked you up
And then dropped you.

I知 sorry that on weekends you were neglected,
And on long summer days you looked completely dejected.

I知 sorry if I ever glared at you like that,
And called you mean names, like 都tupid and 吐at.

I知 sorry I pushed and pulled you in the hall,
And slammed and shoved you against the brick wall.

But, to tell you the truth, I did it because
You池e only a backpack,
After all.
