Wine and Chocolate

my annual Valentine's Day poem...

Wine and Chocolate

If I ply you with wine
will you be my Valentine?
Or does it take chocolate too?
I could buy a box for you.

But don't go asking for jewelry;
I can't afford the tomfoolery
of baubles and trinkets and such
and know I haven't the touch

for romance of any sort
or the paying of court.
Heck, it's even hard
to choose a Valentine card!

I'd say 'humbug' but remember
I did that back in December;
so I'll just forget the day;
tomorrow it all goes away.
