"fuck you," said the man,
left with no backwards glance,
as the dominoes toppled and fell.
oblivious, he turned,
not a bit of concern,
for damning the world to hell.
he wandered away,
apathy in his wake,
a shrug and a turn -- no surprise.
his journey's no shorter,
as for life -- he still courts her,
but walks with the sun in his eyes.
his soles will wear thin,
and, to his chagrin,
he'll find most his trip is uphill.
and soon may just wonder,
if indifference was blunder,
and check where those dominoes fell.
