Apathy

They’re speaking quite loudly with haughty indignance -
Revealing their chances have dwindled and faded
To make their true mark on the world they’ve created,
While moaning and screaming with seething malignance.

Their grievances found with the people they pester
Is nominal next to their toxic behavior;
If only as children they’d had more exposure
Instead of allowing resentment to fester.

If even a purposeful path they can follow,
It’s buried in mindless indulgent pretension;
Abandoning reason, denying dissension -
They threaten detractors with words ringing hollow.
