It don't really matter


It don’t really matter If Plaster of Paris is not made in France If Ginger and Fred never learned how to dance If shoestring potatoes don’t grow in a shoe It don’t really matter because I love you If airports have doorways but call them a gate If calories will never cause us to wait If moisture each morning is something that’s due It don’t really matter because I love you If hamburgers aren’t really made out of ham If jelly won't work to get out of a jam If something that’s old becomes something we knew It don’t really matter because I love you If plants that are planted are still called a plant If uncles get sad when they step on an ant If skies that are happy do always seem blue It don’t really matter because I love you If doors that are open are really ajar If milkshakes aren’t served on a sweet chocolate bar If vegetable soup is not really a stew It don’t really matter because I love you If kings in a downpour get caught in the reign If birds lifting boulders are not called a crane If flying the coop came from chickens that flew It don’t really matter because I love you Grammatically speaking, my title is wrong And maybe this poem goes on a bit long But who cares as long as you know it is true The one thing that matters, is that I love you 4/17/17 Written for the: “Best Rhyming Poem 3” poetry contest Sponsored by John Hamilton

It don't really matter if you win or lose, if you end last, if you lose your shoes. If you write more music than words on a screen, if I mail you more than you've ever seen. What matters is beauty, in word and in mind, and a spirit so warm and forever kind. And that you possess in spades my dear friend. And rhyming you can! May that never end. :)

This one is for the birds ... loved the penultimate stanzas about our avian folk. May I offer a 7 at this late hour? It has flower-power, amen
