It’s odd how some words can play so nicely together,
While others will never be birds of a feather.
Perhaps instead, I should have typed cannot?
However, for personal reasons, that way could not get got.
Since can’t wouldn’t fit, do I just kick it to the curb,
Only to use the other more acceptable verb?
Of course poetry with can’t instead of cannot could be done,
There are more ways to choreograph our words, than just one.
I wish that your words dance across screen and page without fear,
Because there are no purer places to share our thoughts so dear.
So can, can’t, and cannot may never waltz the dance floor together,
Because can’t cannot dance, but Can Can can however.
