Arriving from the bar last night,
What strange thing did I see?
A message on the phone that said
My girl was throught with me.

How could she do this thing to me?
I mean, how could she dare?!
I had to show that silly girl
That I just didn't care!

I had to make her feel the pain
Of giving me the air.
I called her up to tell her just
How much I didn't care.

The phone was busy all night long!
It really wasn't fair.
She should have had call waiting so
She'd know I didn't care.

This morning I jumped out of bed
And hurried over there
To prove to her, once and for all,
How much I didn't care.

I stood there on the sidewalk,
Looked completely unaware,
And, when she'd pass, I'd turn away
To show I didn't care.

But she must have left early which
Is really something rare
And so I lost my chance to show
How little that I cared.

No matter. To her job I went.
The guards gave me a stare
And wouldn't let me in to show
Her that I didn't care!

So all day long I waited. Now
My nerves began to wear.
I had to let her know how much
I really didn't care.

Missed her again! This turned into
A horrible nightmare.
Why should it be so hard to show
This girl I didn't care?

So here I am, at midnight,
Bushes tangled in my hair.
This time I have the perfect plan
To show her I don't care.

I'll toss stones at her window so
That she will be aware
That I don't even miss her and
I truly do not care!

Gee! Look at those round, flashing lights!
And what's that bright red glare?
Methinks it's best to wait a bit
To show her I don't care.

I'll return again tomorrow and
I'll end this sad affair.
She'll really feel bad when she
Sees how I just don't care.

And the world shall show
dear Balladeer
just how much
it doesn't care

when in that cell
he madly goes
and with lock and key
it's sadly closed!

LOL - nekkid in the bushes this time is it?

Really Balladeer? I would like to be the one for whom you didn't care.  

Wonderful.

Balladeer -

If you really 'do not care' ...
I have an idea or two
that would put me in a tizzy.
You could try to give me a call
if her line is still busy.

You could take a trip
and into my yard you'd stomp ..
I won't reveal my exact address
but it has something to do with
Green Swamp !

You could drive up the state
and arrive at County Line RV.
Cause there you'd find me working ...
and we'd roll out the red carpet with glee.

Outside my window
I'd even plant a bush ...
if I thought that you
would plant your little tush !

*Having fun with you, as usual.

Bal: It's been a long day, but those that care, show it and they continue to show it, because they care...nothing less will do.

Balladeer,
If I didn't care
I'd send a letter in the mail
That is if I really didn't care.
Great poem as usual.

Great job depicting someone who doesn't really care, I mean I could really tell how much they didn't care.  

You do have a talent deer.  I enjoy everything you write.

For someone who don't care you sure go through an awful lot of trouble to show it! Great one Balladeer.
Psst...check your spelling and spacing!

He said he didn't care
But there he was again
Standing by her window
On the outside looking in
His spying's getting worse
Afraid to let her go
But more afraid of what he'll see
At night in her window

Hummm, tune, rambling through my head...

"took a walk outside your house, late last night,
all the shades were pulled and drawn, way down tight,..."

perhaps you were at the wrong house?

Great piece...as always.
