Stupid Cupid

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

for a job well done, but


We are easy targets to shoot from a distance

but arrow and flesh soon


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


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

Unlimited ammo


Human hands cannot remove his choice weapon

from their hearts, so the mind


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
