Eggs before hearts

entry picture

On hearing about Easter eggs going on sale on Christmas Eve


No chance for cupid

To pick up his bow

Not yet melted

Those men of snow

When what was on

Shop shelves

Full show

But  a shiny

Easter egg


Left uneaten

Chocolate money

Leaping Lords

Replaced by bunnies

We're still in winter

Though a little sunny

Christmas on 

Last legs


Making profits

Tis' the reason

We've got to rush

Past every season

Greedy business men

We need to please 'em

Romance officially

Romance is alive
only not in
the business eye
forget the eggs
buy some chocs
all half price
tie cupid bow
then to unwrap
share with someone
as snow melts
like your heart.
