The irreparable is replaceable
matching like for like
but once the damage is done
it cannot be fixed without
leaving a scar.

Time and the passing of it
help a bit, but it’s debatable,
the future is unreadable.

Shipton and Nostradamus
tried to charm us
with what they could see
but they didn’t fool me,
I sometimes wonder if
they were on LSD.
