Now I come to you all as a muse,
Who would share his award-winning views,
On a subject so great,
On a night, on a date,
That to miss it would give you the blues.
So sit back, have a drink, don’t delay,
For my words, you shan’t have to pay.
Though mayhaps you should,
My advice, it is good,
And you’ll need it this Valentine’s Day.
Betrothed or no, damsel or knight,
I seek to ease all of your plight,
For the men will be ready,
And the women, rock-steady,
I swear there’ll be no need for fright.
To begin I shall simply remind,
And I’m sure you will readily find,
That this day is not bad,
And I think you’ll be glad,
If your stresses you merely unwind.
For once, it seems, there’s a feast we take,
That’s not for God or Christ’s sake.
Today we rejoice,
With many a voice,
For the love that we have or will make.
Valentine’s is love made easy,
Just avoid the cheap and the sleazy,
But embrace it you should,
For the bad and the good,
For once, be dangerously cheesy.
But many complain ‘bout the price or the hike,
To buy roses or cards or their like,
But try to remember,
That soon comes December,
When we buy presents for those we dislike.
