You shot your dart
Into my heart
And left a gaping hole.

Your aim was keen,
And you should preen!
It shook my very soul.

Though love is blind,
‘Twas less than kind.
You matched me with a troll!

In whose blackened breast
Was a viper’s nest
Midst all the darkness of Sheol.

Next time you shoot
Please be astute.
And use some self-control.

Love’s done me wrong,
Just like the song.
It took an awful toll.

You are a pain
Whose wretched reign
Sincerely is quite droll!

Cherubic rat!
You wing-ed bat!
My happiness you stole!

Shove your quill!
I’ve had my fill
You demonic little mole!
