YOU CAN’T ESCAPE SAINT VALENTINE’S DAY

image

Love might be theater, or love might be a play,

But you can’t escape Saint Valentine’s Day.

You might get together with the girls and dish:

But talking cannot hide your secret wish.

Better to lie on your solitary bed

And let your wish play out in your head—

But how long can that wish, as a wish, stay

Before you get morbid and sad?

No matter what you do, no matter what you say,

You can’t escape Saint Valentine’s Day.

It’s only a day, a mark on the calendar,

You are wise, you are free; to you it shouldn’t matter,

And all of this nonsense will soon go away.

So why are you sad on Saint Valentine’s Day?
