Foreword: One day specifically to celebrate love? Valentines day, commercial nonsense? Retailers and businesses jumping on the money making bandwagon? Whatever your take..here's mine.
Cupid with just a bow and arrow?
I wonder, ain't that a bit narrow?
To think that's how love gets us
You know, scholars think his mum is Venus
Cupid the god of desire
Smouldering embers turn to inferno fire
Erotic love, attraction and affection
I think his arrows have caused an infection
Or is it the irresistible pheromones?
When they ask for the phone
To enter their digits in
Sit and wait for the call..left fidgeting..
Commercialisation of love infects a nation
Valentines day, poisoned love potion, sedation
One day to say I love you even more?
Emotions and expectations spilt all over the floor.
In suspense and left so tense
Courting dance, two left feet, full of pretence
Peacock strut, ignored and muted
God of desire? Cupid? God of Love? Don't be so stupid.
