TITLE: ~Funny Cupid~

If cupid were an Angel,
Sent from high above,
His name would be called Faithful,
For he'd bring a funny love.

Faithful would be marching,
He'd step with each heartbeat,
The sting comes from his arrow,
Not from his scrambling feet.

He's not the kind of image,
You see in all the malls,
Faithful came from Heaven,
He's near when lonely calls.

You might break out in laughter,
Or feel butterflies within,
His arrow never misses,
He shoots a 10 in 10.

That silly little cupid,
Trying to bring love,
Runs across your shoulder,
With wings just like a dove.

His smirk is somewhat crooked,
That shirt don't match his pants,
Each time he sees a mission,
He can't help to breakout in a dance.

He spins around and flutters,
And shakes his Angel tush,
Faithful has his eye on you,
He's hiding in that bush.

So watch your rearview mirror,
Keep track of everytime,
He maybe dancing somewhere near,
You'll find that Valentine.

It is now 1:40 in the afternoon and it's been an irritating day so far. Then I read your article and it made me smile. The images that came to mind were wonderful and very sweet. Nice take on the subject. Well done.

The first three stanzas somehow had me thinking you were going to describe a special angel sent from the Lord. The line that melted me was "Faithful comes from Heaven; He's near when lonely calls." Then I found out you really were writing about cupid. I felt a little let down. But the ending was cute once my thinking got reorientated.
