Valentine’s Day Poem Especially for Tweeters

A stylized heart in red outline.

Here is a heart to create a false expectation that the poem will be conventionally romantic.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Today’s not for tweeps,
It’s only for you.

Eyes burning red,
I’ve tweeted since six;
You’re tapping your foot,
As I sit transfixed.

Tap, tap, tap,
My tired fingers poke,
Or is it your foot?
As you fake a choke.

Your eyes strain,
At calendar near,
And surely forgot,
As Valentine’s rears.

O! dear, O! love,
Let me finish this tweet,
I’m just so close,
To an update complete.

As you turn to go,
Defeat in your eyes,
I wave at the link, perfected in size.

The hashtags are sweet,
Just like my partner, my love,
This blog post’s for you,
(And the retweets thereof).
