Must Venus Forbid Cupid?

(Ahh, It’s Valentine’s Day!)

when hearts and roses are red
the words “I love you.” are said
and cards, love letters are read

it’s Valentine.

when malls and stores are alive
bars are aglow after five
and motels, hotels a-thrive

it’s Valentine.

when playboys shuttle to gates
to meet their schedule of dates
and spinsters long for their mates

it’s Valentine.

when husbands stay with their wives
mistresses brood on their lives
and singles swarm at V-Hives

it’s Valentine.

when Cupid’s arrow’s amiss
careless lovers mate in bliss
then, some ladies’ periods miss

it’s Valentine!

– between heart and hurt is Valentine.
