Answer Back

why do i not fight more?
who do i not argue more?
stamp my feet,
slam the door?
i just do not care
i just cannot be bothered
i could not care less
people act like they are lost
they can be such a mess
with no intent,
to try their best
so i do not rise
to put downs and ignorance
how do i present a comeback
for something that does not make sense
you want to argue
well go ahead
we will all march forwards
revenge will come later
but not in the words said
