a fortnight into February

some will be knights

with impressive displays of chivalry

before their ladies’ eyes

 

some will lose conjugal rights

that they already seldom enjoy

 

some will fuss and fight

or have silence all through the night –

and although… in the same bed

they’ll be fragmented minds, leading separate lives

and pretending to have never before heard of Valentine’s

    I’m definitely just a serf. No need to worry about the withdrawal of conjugal rights or other such acts of amorous leverage.

  3. Be very careful. This could be a prognostication! Been there, done that. (;)
