What Does It Matter?

What Does It Matter?
Peter T. Atkinson

People keep asking, what are you having,
"I don't know" is our only reply,
Which must be a strange answer since
It always prompts the question why.
"What does it matter?"
"Don't you think it makes a difference?"
"Sure there is a difference.
There is all the difference in the world
Between a little girl and a little boy,
And even more as they grow
to be women and men,
but there is a difference
between difference and preference,
and so either we'd equally abide,
so what is there to prepare for
or waste a single care for,
since neither of us gets to decide,
and despite what many think
nor does he (or she),
and it's better that way,
so again,
"What does it matter?"
