Happy V.D.



                                               Harry B. Sanderford
                                                    
                                     I went to the store
                                     to buy you a card.
                            They all seemed so mushy,
                                    deciding was hard.
                                    I looked at them all,
                                  every one on the shelf,
                                    and finally decided
                                   to make one myself.
                                  So,I cut and I pasted,
                                   great gobs of gluey
                                   paper were wasted.
                                   I cut out little hearts
                            I thought you might like to see,
                                      and for the front,
                                    a big HAPPY V.D.!
                                    Speaking of which,
                                I suppose I should say...
                                  That the V. and the D.
                                stand for Valentine's Day.
                                    I'm pointing this out,
                                  lest you take it to mind,
                                   that  this card be one,
                                    of the Get Well kind.
                                  
                               Nope, that's not the case.
                            What this card's meant to say,
                                   is wont you be mine,
                                on this Valentine's Day?
