MAXINE ON SATURDAY

SAINT MAXINE!

Valentine's Day is not, I find,
For one, like you, who speaks her mind.
I'd always try not to 'speak ill'
But then I'd add a codicil!
*
'Yes, I suppose you're pretty nice;
I bet you got this ring half-price.'
*
'Yes, I suppose I love you lots,
But not with all those acne spots!'
 *
'Yes, I suppose I do adore you,
But I loved Henry long before you!'
 *
'Yes, the flowers were quite divine,
But I'd rather have some good red wine.'
*
'Yes, I've given you my heart,
But you're not having any other part!'
 *
'Yes, you are my Valentine,
But sometimes you're a perfect swine.'
*
'Yes, I know we're a perfect couple;
At least, we were when you were supple!'
*
'Alright! I'll love you till I die!
(But I really can't imagine why!')
*
Dear Saint Maxine, on this date
Let you and I just celebrate
By speaking our minds as we always do!
Maxine! Yes! I really love you!
*
