Weak Ass Deflection

A white stucco wall with a crack down its center.

When “I don’t care” is your weak defense —

an attempt at creating a pseudo come-uppance

and a deflection laced with false pretense…

Realizing that your license

for wielding this phrase is an offense

and it is time to cleanse

Yourself of this conditioned happenstance —

in the future purging the occurrence

of the word vomited “I don’t care” utterance.
