Beware Cupid’s perennial invasion:
A V-Day rife with lame, old-fashioned ways.
Why romance must mean things of stale persuasion
Is beyond us. Oh, let us count the cliches!
Low-rent flowers, frilly cards — each year’s the same,
We’re faced with tokens Love would never praise.
And to endure them’s but a crying shame;
For we have seen the future in a vase.
Winston’s modern bouquets, now in our midst —
Are brave in shape, sleek in texture, bold in hue.
Vivid buds yield classics with a twist,
This V-Day — and your passions — to renew.
Thus current takes on Love’s tradition
Prove modern hearts need modern ammunition.
