Reflective tape
and bright red paint
A target tattoo
for the day of the saint
I've purchased these things
in the grip of my fear
that near sighted cupid
will miss me again this year
I've stocked up on bullets
took the rifle from shed
if he misses me again
The little bastard's dead

Now, Raph, just what are us "hopeless romantics" going to do with someone who is "anti-valentine" ??????
I wish I could make that little cupid fellow go over to Canada where you are and shoot an arrow of love between you and some cute girl (woman). THEN  you wouldn't be wanting to write any "anti-valentine" poems anymore...... .
.
.

Just wait, buddy, one of these days you're going to be so in love that most of your poetry is going to be romantic, mushy, lovey-dovey love poems!! HaHa!!

(I hope you know that I'm just kidding with you.....of course, you do!)

Just read this again and I'm shaking my head--kinda reminds me of that old office memo joke:

Am I wrong here? I don't think this was anti-valentine...
but rather you are expressing a longing to be struck by cupid's arrow? Seems like you DO want to fall helplessly in love???

Yes I agree, its about wanting to get hit.  I loved this, of course I have the maturity level of a teenager so the cursing made me laugh!

ROTFLMAO.
If you need any help, I know how to hit that moving target! But since I'm basically a pacifist, I always seem to miss the mark, intentionally.

Hey everybody...
We all know that Raph is really wanting cupid to shoot him with that arrow. He just hasn't got hit just right yet. Let's all tell cupid to go after him...

BTW, Duncan, did I sense a touch of
"Anti-Valentine" on your part, too. You know what that is around here right now.
It's a BIG
