It was really quite a curse
 
I used to start by saying sorry
That maybe I'd recited this before
Or that another voice had spoken it
And that I could add no more
 
I used to start by saying sorry
That maybe I was wasting your time
With my attempts to declaim or utter
Some prose, or monologue, or ...
