Amiable Apathy

Please re-gift this poem to someone who means nothing at all to you,
Send it along with no best wishes to no one liable to sue.

It’s just a note in passing and it means nothing at all you see,
It’s only intended to be a message so they can hear from me.

It comes with no ulterior motives or agendas that are hidden,
Only a dose of frank indifference; all mean thoughts are forbidden.

We always send sweet thoughts along to the ones that we’re connected,
And for those that we just can’t stand, careful words have been selected.

But we always neglect the ones that have no aspects of our life to share,
So send this poem to them so that they can see just how little it is you care.

    haha. What a mind you have, tony. Writing about sending amiable apathy to those we little care about, but it's something most humans cannot help. If we cared for everyone in the world,we would go crazy feeling all their suffering! (can you believe it, soup is back on!)
