So What?

A guy is dying with cancer, I hear.
So what?
There is nothing I can do for him.
Prayer? What prayer?
I am already in that line
with familiar faces.
I might cut in line.
Standing on the cliff,
To offer that guy a prayer
that I am loath to hear?

The only thing I can do
is to look up with vacant eyes
at a vulture that is circling overhead.
