How could I let Valentine’s Day go by without a little poem? But how can I, a self professed Valentine’s Day cynic (read why here), write a slushy poem for the day?
Well the answer is I can’t. So I thought I’d do this instead:
Stop Wasting Money!
The day of love is almost here,
But is it really fair,
To expect everyone to pay double,
And get the exact same share.
Marketed as your girlfriend’s day,
It forces you to spend,
Money on chocolate, flowers and more,
Where oh where will it end?
We’re really not all gold diggers,
Wanting a diamond of our own,
In fact, we’d probably prefer it,
If you’d just sit and listen to us moan.
So guys, put that wallet away,
And instead consider this,
Show your girl you care every day,
With a hug and maybe a kiss.
Forget society’s expectations,
And do this your own way,
Otherwise all you do,
Is say happy Hallmark day.
Happy Valentine’s Day 😉
