The Nothing

There is nothing that hurts
Like being ignored
There is nothing worse
Than being bored
Of everything
When the days
Are a copy
Of a copy
Of a copy
There is very little you can do
Except to keep yourself distracted
From the futility of being alive
Don't look at the truth
It's a fanged monster
Waiting to bite into your conscience
Stay ignorant
It's blissful.
