A Sincere Poem Of Apathy

Updated on January 23, 2011

I have felt your apathy and no longer care!


I joined a world wide group today,

                       it really fills a niche.

It bothers us not if you happen to be,

                                very poor or rich.

It’s sweeping across the world,

           from industrial nation to nation.

It will help to address and suppress,

                 the silly need for motivation.

Forget the states of the United States,

                                                            and join the state of indifference.

Let’s heed the call, make some dough,

                                                             and sit on the proverbial fence.

Please join us or not, but soon you’ll see,

                                                                 it’s really quite the fashion.

You’ll lose your blues; forget the news,

                                                             and all of your compassion.

As you will learn,

                          I’m only deeply concerned with my own concern.

The causes of great value,

                                           are what I’m more inclined to spurn.

We seldom

                   get involved with things that really matter.

When it gets right down to it,

                                              it only makes us sadder.

Oh, we’ll save a whale or send ten bucks,

                                                                to the latest disaster fund.

But if it turns out, your cause has no clout,

                                                                   we will ask for a substantial refund.

We aren’t concerned,

                                  about the clothes you wear.

We quit holding meetings,

                                         because we’re never there.

I may, to you, seem silly,

                                       but I’m sure you’ll see you’re wrong.

I’ll cook some s’mores and open doors,

                                                              even sing a protest song.

For ongoing suffering, I have no emotion,

                                                                 no devotion, zest, or zeal.

I have no interest regarding matters,

                                                          of general importance or appeal.

Marcus Aurelius-Stoic Emperor

There is just so much,

                                  over which to be upset and mope.

The stimuli are too intense,

                                            or too complicated for which to cope.

We have no need for love, sympathy,

                                                           and certainly no remorse,

Turn your eyes from injustice,

                                              and leave events to take their own silly course.

I like to seem, but will never seek,

                                                     attributes like being heroic.

Giving a flip is such a trip,

                                         no; I’m really quite the stoic.

There will be blokes and many folks,

                                                         that try to make us more aware.

There are too many causes to give us pauses.

                                                                         We simply do not care.

Through the daily grind, I find,

                                                I can close my mind.

                                                                                It’s really a panacea.

So let’s all get together,

                                      or maybe not,

                                                            and form the United States of Apatheia.
