Based on WDC Picture Perfect Poetry image prompt of Cupid
A Simple Request Cupid, let me ask you why Each time you aim you pass me by? I know you fly by night and day Yet never opt to shoot my way. Well yes, there’s been a time or two I thought that I was hit by you, But found the aching in my heart Was indigestion on my part. For all these years I’ve stood in wait But never met my perfect date. I only ask for looks and brains And hope for some financial gains. For sixty years I’ve dealt with debt So many things I could not get, Like dental visits once a year But dentures could fix that, I hear. The warts, as well, might be a sight. (I tried to get the rats to bite, But they refused, for goodness sakes! I fed them to my tanks of snakes.) Put all these minor flaws aside. My heart is strong; let me confide, I’ve loved my forty cats for years; We’ve shared so many laughs and tears. But conversation’s rather weak; Those fickle beasts are loath to speak. By talking to a man instead, I’d hush the voices in my head. Please know I have a lot to give And I can change the way I live; So Cupid, you must understand: My future is in your command. You have to aim your bow my way And make this single lady’s day!
