‘He’s sending his love’ – WesternUnion advertisement.
Love’s never been blind, just transferable.
Friends agree he puts the food on the table.
To think his siblings are behind their rent;
the neighbours love & respect a heaven’s sent.
Required once are account name & pin,
& wife can transfer all her love to him.
‘The Messiah’, ‘a lover of children’,
in congregations, a fisher of men!
To think the kiss that comes with every phone,
the joy around the loud ‘I love you!’ tone.
To teach the mouth to bite the hands that feed her,
to think that love’s not money either.
