 Cupid on Strike  (E)
Contest Entry for Newbies are the Judge February 2017
#2111317 by Chris Breva AKA Marvin Schrebe


What would the world be with no love
Just what would our lives then be like
In the heavens someplace above
The god Cupid has gone on strike!

No arrows will pierce anymore hearts
Apathy will be all around
We will want him to give new starts
No normalcy will then be found.

Cupid is a powerful god
With an arrow there is feeling
We either see them as quite odd
Or find them so very appealing.

Now he has gone out on a strike
We should give whatever he would like.

Sonnet form 14 lines, eight syllables per line, rhyme scheme abab cdcd efef, gg
