Day 569: Two Cures for Love


Seeing as it's Valentine's this Friday, I'm going to post poems on the theme of love all week. (I dare not say 'love poems' as that has a regrettable cheesy ring to it.) But not to worry, the poems I have in mind will all have at least one of these things: wit, originality and genuine sentiment. 

Wendy Cope starts us off today, in her typical sarcastic and humorous style, with an abrupt couplet laying out the bare facts in regards to being 'cured' of love - the simple suggestion being that once you get to know the guy, you'll be cured. So much so you'll wonder what you ever saw in him in the first place! How often is this true ladies? Brilliant.



Two Cures for Love - Wendy Cope

1. Don't see him. Don't phone or write a letter.
2. The easy way: get to know him better.
