Friday Poetry: "Ode to Valentine's Day"

It's Valentine's Day once more! Who's joining me in sitting at home eating ice cream and having pathetic single girls' parties?

For those of you who are single at this point in time, I do hope you aren't letting all the PDA-gooey-eyed-oh-my-god-I'll-love-you-forever-or-at-least-until-next-week couples get you down. And if it is bothering you (which I really couldn't blame you for, considering the fact that even I, the self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, am getting slightly tired of them), never fear! In the true love-chocolate-roses-romance spirit, I've written a limerick (my first one!) entitled—quite aptly, I might add—“Ode to Valentine's Day”. It goes into great depth and detail, extolling the many virtues of this marvellous holiday. You can definitely tell how much I absolutely love today and how excited I am to be celebrating it, because I, as a highly skilled and talented writer, most definitely am not alluding to anything other than the intended message, nor am I even suggesting the idea that there may or may not be something else at play other than what I have spent the last paragraph and run-on sentence impressing upon you all.

Ahem. Anyway. Enjoy the poem. And happy Valentine's Day!

Ode to Valentine's Day

The big day is here once more!
Bringing roses and chocolates galore,
(And to those with no one
Who sit at home being glum—
Well, you, we’ll just conveniently ignore.)
