Poem by Robert Burns

Sent to a Gentleman whom He had Offended

THE friend whom wild from wisdoms way
  The fumes of wine infuriate send
(Not moony madness more astray)-
  Who but deplores that hapless friend?

Mine was th insensate frenzied part,
  Ah! why should I such scenes out-live?
Scenes so abhorrent to my heart!
  Tis thine to pity and forgive.

Robert Burns
