What matters

It really doesn’t matter that some people think the Earth is flat
or that humans never landed on the moon
or that evolution either did or did not make all creatures into this and that
It really doesn’t matter that some people think they they know their God
or that all that happens is some vast and interweaving plot
with every step we take determined as a step that must be trod
It really doesn’t matter if people believe in ghosts, or not
or karma, reincarnation, transubstantiation
the whole magical mysterious and unlikely lot 
All that really matter is what we do
to self, to others
to me, to you
