An Authentic Apology?

from 'La Caricature,' 11th May 1889' courtesy of art.com
I accept responsibility
Although I adhered to all the rules
The reaction was adverse, you see
I’m in a group of fools!
Jim Dandy won't come to my rescue
So I'll drink from that little brown jug
Yea, I need to imbibe, buster
And tonight Beefeater's my favorite drug!
Stuck with animosity
Bitterness thrown asunder
I affirm in all sincerity
I made a major blunder!
You’ll agree with that I know
You’d astonish me if you did not
I attract self centered egotists
Yes, you’re right, I took a shot!
An authentic apology
You’ll not receive from me
Because in my humble opinion, sir,
You are low class bourgeoisie!
