THE CHANGELESS PAST
By Berton Braley.
If you have said a cruel thing
To wound and pain,
Nothing you do will ever bring
It back again;
You may retract, apologize
With heart that's broken,
But ever you must realize
The word was spoken.
The wound may heal but still, in
spite of care
The scar is there.
If you have done a deed that's wrong
It stands forever,
Though afterwards you labor long,
With high endeavor,
To live it down and make it right,
This is your sentence,
To know the deed still stands in spite
Of all repentance;
Though all the rest of all your life
That stain is there!
The record stands in spite of toil
Our acts remain, however much
If you'd atone for deeds that you re
gret, Doa't do them! '

a scene shifter you're a darb at
changing a kitchen into a coal mine.
You're the guy that put the soot in
damage suit and the cuss in muss.
Beat it, you he-Cinderella, before I
make you wear thes.e pipe joints for
collars and cuffs!"
