Valentine's Day Musings

All year long he puts my heart on a shelf
No surprise I’d rather be by myself
     If there’s no Valentine treat
     From this worthless hunk of meat
He can go on making love to himself

Remember there’s an “I” in Valentine
So if no one’s around to say, “Be mine”
     Just splurge – get a new hairdo
     Party with an all-girl crew
Check out the divorce rate and say, “I’m fine”

*For Francine's Valentine Limerick contest

    Congratulations on your fantastic 2nd Place win in the contest, Carolyn. I missed this dear friend, but it's never late to send congratulations. Speaking about love..sometimes it's not even what we believe it is...and I love the last line...

    Carolyn, I really like this, an all girl's crew on Valentine sounds fine, have fun...We share the same sentiments on "poverty". Eliminating is the only cure for everything wonderful. Have a nice weekend.
