Sickly printed verses on
Tawdry folded cards.
Attached to plastic flowers.
Leering, smirking Cupids
Engaged in shooting arrows
Not caring who they're hitting.
Twisting tales of lovers found
In unlikely ways and places.
Neatly packaged tokens of
Emotionally drenched affection,
Simpering teddy bears clutching 'sweet' hearts.
Despite these overwhelming shows of manufactured mush
Actual love is found displayed across the world,
You can express your feelings without fear of mocking.
Yep. It's those one-stop people again! And I wasn't going to rant today either. Ooops!
