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.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
