I could care less, but what if I get careless?
Could I care for you outside this nightmare?
Over therefore who was always right there?
Uninterrupted by a slight scare
Life can lift one up to heights where
Difficulty sheds unfairness
Could I care less
And still be careless?
Running with a sultry sped awareness
Ensembled in a somber dreadful bareness
Life can bring one down to sights where
Every bottom out is sheer delight’s prayer
Sent instead of do-or-dareness
So I still could care less…
…But in this first to blink & stare mess
What if I get careless?
