Nobody gives a damn

We show off
hoping that somebody
is watching our follies.
A God, maybe, or a Devil,
or anyone else.

Someone weighing our sins
and allotting sweet rewards
and bitter punishments
for merits and failures
we can't comprehend.

But we have grown up
and nobody gives a damn.
Not really.
