Stupid Cupid


I’d imagine the sweat of Cupid’s brow perfuse

for a job well done, but

never

We are easy targets to shoot from a distance

but arrow and flesh soon

sever

Was it he who uttered, “It is better to have loved and lost,

then never to have loved at all”?

So us mere mortals have no choice but submission

to Cupid’s whim we must all

fall

Cupid’s bow stays active as a butterfly’s wing

Unlimited ammo

frights

Human hands cannot remove his choice weapon

from their hearts, so the mind

fights

I’d imagine the sweat of Cupid’s brow perfuse

because people deny

the truth

But then again does Cupid even know conscience?

He’s just doing his job

Uncouth
