Valentine’s Day Haiku IV

Four years, three haikus;
and now I am married.
That beats these word games.

Paul got married, then
Lost his one, sure meal ticket:
The Ping's gay fanbase.

Paul is married now.
Let him never forget that
sales start tomorrow.

(Mmm... 1/2 off chocolate sales... now that's a holiday.)

I'm only seeing 6 syllables Paul's second line. Shouldn't it be 7?

Valentines Day is
ust a hallmark holiday
buy Mac stuff instead

Valentines Day is

True, Chris, it's only 6. But why play by the rules?

Valentine's Day cards?
Tell the people whom you love
You love them daily.

I basically only like this day because I can go overboard with all things pink. I decorated my one bathroom and put metallic heart garland around the toilet.

PS-Kate is right! Sale chocolate is a beautiful thing. A delicious thing.

Maybe Paul's pretending that married has three syllables in it. It's always fun to do that sort of thing.

Ping, my valentine
I have no true need anymore
for pale hearts and wine.

Hey, this is fun!
