Poisoned Darts and Digging for Hearts -
A Rhyming Shot at the Valentine’s Plot

Chalking up hearts or just gathering gold
May dictate we dig deeper than we behold.
We shoulder our shovels and wait for the bell –
With pure paranoia, we theorize hell.

Perhaps we need power tools, plugged in to roar,
Instead of a balcony tryst to abhor.
And yet, we persist with a frenzied request
To race rocky romance and hope for the rest.

Does Cupid still grin, as he draws back his bow,
Or might the wee archer aim further below?
What ethics remain for the purest in heart
When victimized sorely by his poisoned dart?

To many, the meaning of Valentine tune:
The following day cannot dawn all too soon.
