I wanted to prove to myself,
I had nothing to prove to you.
I wanted to show the world,
As opposed to merely a few.
Nothing from nothing leaves nothing,
Totaling a zero sum game.
A completely wasted effort,
By any other name.
If you discount the sins of omission,
disregard the ones done with glee,
Add up the missed opportunities,
We're pretty much even you see.
Now if you'll excuse my fast exit,
Hello and then I am gone.
I'll call when I get where I'm going,
Most likely from hither and yon.
