Cupid: Spare Another Arrow?


Wherever you are dear Cupid,
Please break out your bow.
I’m just not convinced,
You’re done with one arrow.

Love can sometimes fade,
We may need a shot or two.
To revive the passionate flame,
We, at one time, knew.

Life can become distracting;
Times and people change.
Marriages and relationships fail.
Not all love remains.

I know that you are busy,
Much new love to spread.
But if it’s not too much to ask,
Could a few extra arrows you shed?

To the old veterans of love,
Who’ve been with one person for years.
So that love will flourish,
Lend us your Cupidy ears.

Shoot another arrow to reignite the spark.
We need to keep alive the love in our sometimes fickle hearts…

Someone Shot Cupid!


Someone shot dear Cupid.
Who might it have been?
Fluffy winged cherub,
Who could be so grim?

Cupid, sweet spreader of new love,
Igniter of passionate desire.
I’m just sure the murderer,
Will become very familiar with fire!

I can respect the resentment,
One could develop over time.
Feeling ignored and abandoned,
No sharp arrows did they find.

But really now, it’s a bit much,
To take out the little guy.
He was just doing his job,
With love’s timing, he did comply.

I hope there is an apprentice,
Or we’re all doomed indeed.
Now that Cupid’s gone to heart heaven,
Leaving the world in desperate need.
