LOVE POEM



Always hated fukken Valentine's Day
cuz you had to git all dressed up 
and show up wit a box of chocolates
under youse arm and 
take her out to dinner
and da whole bit
when what you really wanted to do 
was stay home and watch da basketball game 
in your skivvies
and to make matters worse
a couple weeks later
she ain't even wit you no mo!!!
what kinda deal is dat?

think I got out just in time man
what wit dis war between da sexes
dat's raging today
HEY
I ain't gonna study war no more
so why would I need 
some old battle-axe around???

now I be watchin' da game
and poppin' dem yummy chocolates
into my own face
finally catchin' on
finally wakin' up
to da realization 
at long long last
just how sweet life can be... 

when I'm in love wit me

  6. Loved it. I got married so I wouldn't pine each year 'cos I hadn't received any Valentine cards. Then I got one every year after that but dunno who it was from!

    Do one's own thing and not a bother from anyone. Freedom to enjoy all the more. Very true Timoteo!

  9. I don't care a fig or feather for chocolates and hearts. I'd rather watch a game than slip through syrup. I guess that is why I've been married 47 years. :)

    1. There's something to be said for longevity, Susie! It helps if both of you are into basketball--lol

  10. Lol......i love it. I, too, love doing my own thing. Valentines' day's dark side is the theme at Toads. This poem certainly fits.

  11. There's something to be said to knowing yourself well, and being unapologetic about who you are.

    1. So true, Rommy. I'd only be apologizing to myself anyway, and myself doesn't care who I am :)

  12. I knew you would have a nice twist in the end! Chocolates and your favorite tv show... not a bad way to spend the evening.
