Ask and See

What if every time we felt a whisker
we would speak in whispers?

If work was a longer word
would we play more and talk less?

If all paper was story-white
would I write thicker plots?

Which woman's gift to man
created moan?

Does that last stanza make you
as mad as it makes me?
Which goddess have we to thank for d?

Will we someday no the difference
between ask and see?

PROMPT: I chose words from my magnetic tile stash that appealed to me that day (I have lots!). I also was interested in paradox--between similar spellings but divergent meanings, for instance.
