Picture above...my doodles done in pencil and color pencils.
Valentine's Day, how I wish it were dead
As the thought of it all still fills me with dread.
How could I have been so utterly stupid
To place my fate on a misfit like cupid.
Sure his arrow was dull and his aim pretty bad
But he missed it entirely and that's really sad.
He said he had flinched, had a speck in his eye,
Thought he was on target and ... well he wouldn't lie.
But something had happen that Valentine's Day
His arrow went haywire, went really astray.
As I walked through the park in the hour of lunch
I had this strange feeling ... it was only a hunch.
That the man of my dreams, Mr. Right would be there
And together we'd make such a wonderful pair.
Then there on a bench in the shade of a tree
Sat tall dark and handsome ... He was looking at me!
He was all that I'd hoped for this Adonis so fine
With help from dear Cupid he could have been mine.
But Cupid had faltered, his arrow went long
It missed Mr. Right ... it hit Totally Wrong.
Not tall, dark and handsome that made my heart flutter
I got short, squat and gruesome ... still makes me shutter.
For just past the bench on the trunk of the tree
Not hidden from sight but still hard to see.
A target so small, so odd and so strange
was not beyond Cupid's arrows range.
What Cupid's arrow had hit on that log
Was a tiny wee fellow, a little Green Frog !

Well as I forewarned you, I was going in a different direction. Some of you may like it, some may hate it and probably a lot won't have a clue as to just what to make of it. LOL
May you all have a very special someone to make your Valentine's Day extra special.
