Valentine's Day Cynic

Love I see it piled sky high on the supermarket shelves Perfect pink packaging containing calorific chocolates and cute cuddly toys, seductive scents or sexy silk underwear Slushy Valentine’s cards with ridiculous romantic rhymes Stick on a cardboard heart and it's not just the vendor who is smiling! A sea of red roses that stretches as far as the eye can see Notice how the prices inflate higher than a helium 'I Love You' balloon Yet on 15th February everything will be half price Is this the price of true love or am I just a cynic?
