Valentines Day

I was puzzling and puzzling,
wondering what can I do?
I looked at the wall,
for an hour or two.
I tapped all my fingers,
and fiddled about,
perplexed and befuddled,
in a spiraling spout.
And then just when all
of my thoughts did collide,
I looked to my inbox
and what did I spy?
Why i spied a small mail,
just few lines of prose,
I opened it up,
and the offer arose:
“We’ll make you a deal!
Such a wonderful deal!
Just like Cupid’s shot
this will make Schmoopy squeal!
Why for just a small fee,
we’ll take in your dough,
and turn it around
and double it’s glow!
Then the flowers you buy,
and the vase therein placed,
will be worth twice as much,
as the order you placed!
So take out your wallet,
you smitten Mad Hatter,
for Valentines Day
is no laughing matter!”
And the rest my dear friend,
well it goes without saying,
St. Valentine came,
and the harps started playing.
So the story of fretting
it ends with a grin,
and plentiful pockets
that are not quite so thin!
