Literature Text

You say "hell is other people.",
but where do you think you'd be
if everyone around you
shared your misanthropic view?
Without cooperation,
in a world of apathy,
what exactly is it
that you think that you could do?
Written for day 29 of the 2018 April Poem-A-Day Challenge on the Writer's Digest Poetic Asides Blog.
Prompt - Write a response poem. Respond to whatever helps you get your poem written, but my thought is that you should respond to one of your poems from earlier in this challenge.
This is a response to my poem from day 26, Misanthropic Abandon, and the title is a reference to the song, Independence, by Marian Call
