A Letter to Love


Dear Love,
This is just to let you know
That your good name is flown about today
By hypocritical name-droppers
Who mistake lust for you
Thus, have I sought you everywhere
To ask why you don't care a hoot about this mess
But can't find you anywhere
And, sadly, those who claimed they knew you so well
And had a large dose of you to dispense
To souls void and yearning for you
Knew not a jot about you
Therefore, do send me your residential address
So I can pay you a private visit
For I need to know you intimately
But if you still live in the heart of man
Bother not to reply this missive
For I will never be your guest
Because that city is thickly populated
By desperate wickedness
Which is beyond human comprehension.
Best wishes.
Your admirer,
CJ.
