The Politician’s Apology

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Shoulda, coulda, woulda

Shoulda done more
Coulda done more
Would have done more
There was this 
And there was that
We did our best
Under the circumstances
We did
Better than them
Better than we thought
We apologise
For earth we left you
We enjoyed it while we could
So now you can’t
