When Cupid Lost His Wings

It was a cold February day
I remember well
A day that’s clear here in my mind
The day that cupid fell

Now that little cherub boy
Was playing with my mind
Shooting arrows here and there
In hopes my love he’d find

He was working over time
He was on a roll
But all that flapping of his wings
Was bound to take it’s toll

I was getting so confused
Arrows flying left and right
By the time the clock struck 9
I was on date three that night

First was charming Balladeer
A gentleman of course
And Christopher who played the knight
And rode in on his horse

The final one was Toerag
Who knocked upon my door
I looked out to see him there
And thought, “Oh no, no more!”

I opened up the door to see
Him smiling there at me
And in his hands a bunch of flowers
Which around them buzzed a bee

“Look out I said,” a bit too late
As the bee began to land
Upon Toerag, who unaware
Swatted with his bare hand

The bee became so angry
It bit him on the rear
And Toerag in hasty escape
Threw the flowers in the air

Poor old cupid flying high
With duty on his mind
Was busy taking careful aim
To all else he was blind

The flowers hit his tired wings
And threw them all off beat
He lost his balance in the sky
To land at Toerag’s feet

His wings were broken, his bow was bent
There were tears there in his eye
From angel status he had gone
To just a naked guy

He hid his full embarrassment
Among some other things
I tell you it wasn’t a pretty site
When cupid lost his wings





 Have you ever noticed
That the words...
"Goodbye"
"I'm sorry"
"I love you"
Are so easy to pronounce
...Yet so hard to say
~Javan

I wasn't around when this was first posted, so I enjoyed reading it now. A delightfully funny poem for the coming Valentines Day.

Too bad that cupid lost his wings
to land so roughly on the floor
it's about now the doorbell rings
me waiting to become date number four.

Couldn't resist!
Nice Poem,

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?
