I gave my heart to an ant

Who toted it to his colony

Distributed it to the young

Spreading my love around

I gave my heart to a cow

Who fed it to her calf

Suckling it’s mommy’s cud

Soothing it’s hunger pangs

I gave my heart to a dino

A Tyrannosaurus Rex

Whose sharp teeth seared organ flesh

Dismantling all I gave​

I gave my heart to a lover

Who bludgeoned it with poor words

Dismantled it with unkindness

Whisked it to the wind

Then along came a sweetheart

A joyous marvelous love

Sat me by a lovers’ hearth

Warmed all my blues away​
