The Dark Side of the Love Poem


When most people think of Valentine’s Day, I’m sure the traditional love poem comes to mind. I thought today I’d break that stereotype, and write one for the other side of the love poem.

*And yes, before it is pointed out, I am aware that it’s July.*

****

Holiday of Bitterness and Desperation

Lonely people’s bane,

product of evil florists

and greeting card stores.

Cashing in on heartbreak

and corporate propaganda,

forking over four-grand for

a piece of crystalized carbon,

intrinsically worthless…

Everywhere you go there is people holding hands,

but soon you realise that,

you love food the best.

Viewpoints of the Corporate Overlord

Roses are red, violets are blue,

forget the love concept,

the green is sweet to.
