all that is left

as the end credits
began to slowly scroll by
I didn’t know how to react
whether to clap or to sigh

the main character
was so obvious and dull
leaving me indifferent to his plight
and with very little over which to mull

the whole pointless plot
made absolutely no sense
with all the best laughs
ultimately coming at my expense

and the endless subplots
were all mere diversions
taking me on all sorts
of useless dead-end excursions

and so as the grand theater
now grows still and dark
all that is left in this empty space
is my fading final question mark
