Does It Really Matter What A Preposition Is


Does it really matter what a preposition is,
When the language has been butchered...
And few caring less,
If what is spoken is correct.

Does it really matter what a preposition is,
When attempted comprehension...
Is a waste of definitions,
With no understanding made.

Does it really matter what a preposition is,
With a noun to form a phrase...
That positions should express,
What modifier says it best.

Does it really matter what a preposition is,
If an 'of' is there to shove.
Or if a 'to' is there to use,
To qualify it as a tool.

Does it really matter what a preposition is,
When nobody is impressed...
How a message is addressed.
Or if an intention has any content left.

Does it really matter what a preposition is,
When all minds today are distant.
Does it really matter what a preposition is,
From a consciousness considered unfit.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
