Loving Poem About Love


Loving Poem #14

My love is like a red, red rose
Covered with green, green aphids.
Hurry! Quick!
Spray my red, red rose with Aphids B-Gon(tm).

Now my red, red rose is aphid free.
At least metaphorically so.
Did using the Aphids B-Gon
Pollute the love garden of the world?

Boy, I hope not!
Love is complicated.
Isn’t it?
Metaphors too.


– Paul De Lancey, The Comic Chef, Ph.D.
