The weight of expectation
Hangs heavy in the air
“Does she really love me?”
“Does he even care?”…
Enough to buy a *Clintons’ Card,
A dozen over-priced red roses?
A heart shaped box of chocolates
Then on one knee proposes?
Why pander to the commercial threat
Romance isn’t for one day of the year;
There’s three hundred and sixty-four others
To make loving intentions clear.
*In the USA you’d perhaps say a Hallmark card 🙂
