Hawk our poetic muse, shares a Valentines Day poem that hearts the complex feelings around this day with humor.
Eros peeks his little head
Above the rocks with steady aim
Arrows piercing butts abound
His laughs intently show his game.
Agape simply stays in bed
Keeps the pillow on his head
No use today to tell the masses
Don’t wear those damned rose colored glasses
And on this day abandon hope
All ye who enter and elope
Particular to Spring’s first joke
I present the horny Jack-a-lope.
No sin, I tell you Cupid’s jest
His love’s to make his happy mess
They’re swappin spit from here to there
Bras and neckties, god knows where.
I’ll admonish while I can
Careful with your heart young man.
There are a host of days to come,
When romance is a salient plan.
The Cherubs seems to know their way
Around the human heart…today
Some say better, some say worse,
Tomorrow is a different verse.
~ H. Durham – Valentine’s Day 2011
