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 Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
