H is for Hwat is it

It is what it is she said,
Call me back and I’ll tell you what.
Whatsit? Hwat?
(I knew what, this is it.)
She entrusts herself to the earth for safekeeping.
And that’s what it is.
Please stop saying it is what it is:
I melt with it, it stops the world.
We all know
It’s the double truth ruth:
It is what it is till it isn’t.
