The Unmet Quest
Seeking out a quest
As a party's unseen guest
Caught a couple in a quarrel,
HE in black and SHE in floral.
Quite the quibble, quack, quack, quack!
Common courtesy both did lack
Cupid was quick with this trick
Pulled an arrow from his quiver,
Hit HER heart and hit HIS liver
(Cupid's heart was filled with sorrow.
Needed glasses 'fore the morrow).
SHE did shiver with delight
HE responded, fast in flight
SHE gave chase, but soon lost face,
HE was fast, SHE couldn't last.
This 'love' was doomed right from the start
All 'cause Cupid missed the heart.
