Regret: cud-chewing

when you don’t have the stomach

for endless rumination.

Chew the fat; not the cud.

What’s done is done,

so you would be better placed

to concentrate on

management of the future,

though control is limited.

To realise that

need not be fatalistic.

Take life by the horns

and responsibility

for your deeds – not the whole world’s.
