When Valentine’s Day Was About Hearts and Love

There was a time when Valentine’s Day was about hearts and love
Romance, flowers and chocolate
Dinner for two
Holding hands by candlelight
Exchange of cards and gifts
A long lasting kiss on the lips

In 1929, Al Capone made it about greed
And cornering the market on the illegal booze running trade
By having 7 members of the Bugs Moran gang gunned down
in a garage in Chicago

In 1989, Ayatollah Khomeini made it about hate
And religious intolerance
When he issued a fatwa (death edict) on Salman Rushdie
for writing The Satanic Verses

On Valentine’s Day 2022 Canada’s Neo-Stalinist despot Justin Trudeau
made it about tyranny
When he invoked the Emergencies Act
To end freedoms in Canada
Naturally the lying son of Fidel Castro
said that it was only “temporary”
To bring an end to blockades
That this speaker of Orwellian Ministry of Truth truths
Called “illegal” and “violent”
The blockades are neither
But to this Communist son of Beelzebub
It doesn’t matter
Because like all despots and all tyrants
He creates his own reality, his own truth
It doesn’t correspond to actual reality
Or actual truth
For he believes in the Stalinist lie
And all who deny it
Belong to a “small fringe minority”
No matter how large a multitude
For they have “unacceptable ideas”
In other words ideas that differ
from the ideas held by his own satanic narcissistic self.

    I liked it better when it was about flowers and love.

      Same here, Daniel.

      • Hyperion said,

        I’ll strive to keep it that way over here.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, for me as well.

        Still hoping to find my Dragon Lady.

      • Hyperion said,

        She’s out there. The hard part is finding her.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Very true.

      • Hyperion said,

        Of course with the divine connectivity of the void, you both will move closer to each other without knowing it and one day you both will occupy the same spot at the same time. Boom! You’re there.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Looking forward to it. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        Like a good scout, be prepared.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Wise advice.
