A mistake

It is a sad change,
That is a bad change.
And there lies the rub,
Of Beelzebub.

From a cavalier state
I tried to change my fate
And what I did undo
Has only turned a shrew.

That and ennui,
Turned its face to me.
The soil of repost,
Forgives not the host.

There was no crime within,
It was no crimson sin.
The mirror held to view,
Only exposed the true.

But the past is the past
And it is not the last.

The last two lines sum it up well, Seymour.
Indeed. "the past is the past". Good job.

Excellent! Am I being repetitive? Can't help it!

The past is the past--you can't change it and you can't live in it. Well said, Seymour.

I agree. The last two lines finish the poem
perfectly. I enjoyed it very much.

Michael,
You always get to the heart of things. You have a keen mind and words I love to read.
Denise,
I'll take excellent any old time, thank you.
Witch's Brat,
But you can always send the past a rose, thanks for the read.
Ohme,
Enjoying is full pay for me, thank you.
