Cupid Needs A Spanking... (Humor) - Poem by elysabeth faslund

That little bitty kid
With the arrow nocked tight
Does far too much damage.

Although the kid's got wings,
A Cherubic, chubby face...
Who trusts a god in Huggies?

    This is delightful. A cartoonists portrait inked with great style and charm. I was watching an ad on the idiot box last night that was sensitively shot and expensively acted with the theme of 'hugs'. Yes, it was an ad for 'huggies' - one of the most polluting 'labour-savers' every invented. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Great poem. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    I belive the term is 'to nock an arrow' - therefore 'arrow nocked tight', however your meaning is clear. The classical reference to cupid has him nude, wherein the need for huggies originates I guess. Love sometimes is like being shat on from a great height... Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply
