A Poem by Martin Cohen

Lovely Limerick
(A response to a poem titled "Never Rhyme with Love", which listed the five words that rhyme with "love" and insisted that they should never be used because the result was bound to be sappy and sentimental. I hope you’ll agree that this is neither sappy nor sentimental.)

There's a problem with being in love

When you’re dumped you turn vulture from dove
     Rage makes you think of
     Ways to shove from above

But be sure that you’re wearing a glove

Martin Cohen is a retired computer programmer who loves dancing (favorites are West Coast Swing, Waltz, Tango, and Foxtrot), writing (but not revising) poems, and solving math problems.
