Is Cupid a Terrorist?

 

 

'Cupid', by Sir Joshua Reynolds

 

 

*

I saw some hippies in a jiffy.

Man they looked spiffy,

Fresh from a spliffy.

*

They met in the park

on a lark

and

a shot

in the dark.

*

They wanted to

make a mark,

moondance

under the moonlight

in the park.

*

Sirens! Sirens!

Hark! Hark!

Alert! Alert!

*

Someone is digging

in the dirt!

*

“Flirting with danger

deranged and contagious.”

*

“What they

felt was so

dangerous!”

*

“What they did

was so outrageous!”

*

They are

now caged

for their

out-rage.

*

Does this enrage us?

Will this engage us?

*

Some say they

are courageous.

Others say it

is contagious.

*

Are we staring down

the barrel

of a loaded gun?

*

Is their no place

for a little

court and spark?

*

Have the jesters

all

had their fun?

*

Are we all alone,

dancers

in the dark?

*

Have we all

come

undone?

*

Have the slings and

arrows

hit their mark?

*

Is Love

now

on the run?

*
