A Shrug and a Chug

Told my friend my trouble,
Not a word did he say,
Merely a shrug,
And on his beer a chug...

Why did I bother?
No one seems to care,
My baby's left me...
And I have no clue,
As to where...

A hole torn in my heart
And I don't know why,
Was this a love,
Doomed from the start?

Enjoy your beer,
My worthless friend
And after time grants me
A chance to mend...

You will no longer be
A friend of mine,
For like my girl
You do define

The meaning of indifference,
Casual, stylish hurt
And if, in the future,
My words grow curt

Go chug a beer,
And shrug it off,
And if you sneeze,
Or if you cough,

My concern is gone,
Dissipated by insincere
responses,
To my concerns,
So if you feel you need
a friend,
Remember, on me,
You can no longer depend.
