beekeeper of the heart

As any foole knows, Saint Valentine is actually three different semi-legendary people all of who were grusomely martyred.

You probably knew that they are the patron saints of beekeepers, but far more disturbingly they are also the patron saints of greeting card manufacturers.

Roses are red and violets are blue,
buy her a card, or she won’t love you

Roses are red, carnations are pink,
here is some perfume to conceal your stink

Love hearts are sickly, Teddys are kitsch,
buy shoddy love tokens and help Hallmark get rich

But although I dislike the Catholic Church and the Hallmark corporation in almost equal measure, I quite like Vallys day myself.

About caspar

Caspar is just one monkey among billions. Battering his keyboard without expectations even of peanuts, let alone of aping the Immortal Bard. By day he is an infantologist at Birkbeck Babylab, by night he runs BabyLaughter.net
