Remorse is an afterthought.
Bitter aftertaste it wrought.
All the careful preparations
suddenly without more, bust.
What was thought fertile plain
Now indeed dry desert be
Remit was to buy original.
Alas, counterfeit you gain
So, every budding buyer beware.
Self-harm it is to spite your face
Cutting off your nose injures none
other than you; jeopardizing more.
