A Valentine’s Vitriology

A Valentine’s Vitriology

(On the Underestimated Consequences of Valentine’s Day)

Do you look forward eagerly to Valentine’s Day each year, or do you dread this February 14th holiday? Will thoughts of Valentine's Day bring you hearty happiness or heartache? Does the mere mention of Valentine’s Day warm your heart or chill you to the core?

Valentine’s Day Is Vile
(A Limericked Look at a Day Most Mistook)

I snort at chaos with a seal,
As heart-shaped contents may reveal.
To downturned grin
And much chagrin,
A Valentine packs no ideal.

This moment puts us on the spot,
Selecting greetings oft store-bought.
The good old days
Have gone a-ways,
I pity lovers who’ve forgot –

While counting Valentines I’ve got.

“I can’t make you love me,
If you don’t.
You can’t make your heart feel
Something it won’t.”
American singer and songwriter
(1949 -   )
