When Mother Nature’s dandruff flakes cover the hard gray-brown ground
It makes me want to give her a shampoo that would help with her scalp condition
Now you might think that I’m being uncaring and callous
True, but I think not letting her know about her problem perpetuates all the negative
Everyone would benefit from her doing a little bit of hygiene
Really, it would make head and shoulders of a difference
Pliable emotions allowed them to bend and not break
Letting the couple withstand so many of life’s issues
And it also let their souls meld into a perfect fit with each other
So it was no surprise to those around that as their features morphed by time’s hands
That it didn’t make a difference to the beauty they saw in each other
It was inspirational to view, to feel
Can something like that be recycled for the betterment of society?
There was no way to change direction
Until they decided upon a destination
Really it didn’t make a difference to either of them
Neither wanted the journey to end
So, you thought I would lapse in my attentiveness, and then you would give me the underdress.
Lilly, what are you blundering about this time?
It makes no difference, I found the small dock you parked your getaway dingy at!
Perhaps before you verbally stumble some more you should hand over the thesaurus.
Maybe those dreams of grandeur are inflating your ego
Obviously weighing over a ton would be great
Under a pair of majestic antlers atop your head
Still, remember little one, there is a difference in what you are and your dreams
Even though it’s just a u and an o.
Counterfeit bills lined his bedroom like wallpaper
And he doesn’t tell his “visitors” the difference
So when they take their due and leave he just prints more
He should have felt bad, but he just didn’t give a buck
Shadows danced in his eyes, and that’s what mesmerized her
He haunted her every waking moment, and then those dreams
Any difference between dream and reality were very slight variations
Darkening her ability to keep a coherent thought
Eventually, his veil was lifted, but it was too late for her
