Possibly

Possibly is not a monosyllable,
Then answer me
At once if possible
Monosyllabically,
No will be good, yes even better
Though longer by one letter.

Possibly is not a monosyllable
And my heart flies shut
At the rumble
Of a suspended but...
O love, be brief and exact
In confession of simple fact!
