In Defense Of Apathy
(5/29/2021)


Brother Bollocks
has come
to realize

that
humanity

the world

the universe

are stupid

uncaring

scary
propositions

so anyone
aspiring
to a portion
of inactivity

a void
of silence

a slice
of solitude
for themselves

should not
be disparaged

they do
nothing

for the sake
of their
sanity

for the sake
of themselves
within this
perilous
existence

for the sake
really
of us all

neither
part
of the problem

nor a detractor
from the solution

Brother Bollocks
pulls the blinds

breathes
easily
in the dark

listening
to the miracle
of his beating
heart

believing
that life
would be
so much better

if everyone
did
the same
