would you still love me...

Would you still love me?
by Karin Taylor

Would you still love me
if I was a cat who had outstayed
his welcome and eaten a rat?

Would you still love me
if I was a a dog who had eaten
your dinner and farted a lot?

Would you still love me
if I was a prawn, gone
rotten in garbage, bearing
maggot-like spawn?

Would you still love me
the larger I got, dining out on
ricotta and linguini a lot?

Would you still love me
despite my compulsion,
to pick my nose despite
public revulsion?

Would you still love me
if always I burped, after lemonade
soda’s I downed with dessert?

Would you still love me
if I went bald and batty, forgetting
my manners and also my undies?

Would you still love me
despite my bad habits, forgetting to
wash clean my stinky wet armpits?

Would you still love me
if ever I aged, and became an old lady
smelling like sage?

Would you still love me
despite all my afflictions
and my dark dedication to atrocious-type diction?

Would you still love me
if I were to boast how well I could balance
my toes on my nose?

Would you still love me
if I broke into song and belly-danced naked
on Her Majesty’s throne?

Would you still love me
if I went to bed early forgetting to help
with the chores in the morning?

Would you still love me
if I stopped cooking dinner, stopped washing
clothes and stopped clearing clutter?

Would you still love me
if ever I ceased to be caring and thoughtful
and cover my sneeze?

Would you still love me,
despite all my fears, are you still able
to love me my dear?

would you still love me...
