Sonnet #63

All you need is love, a house that’s warm,
A job that’s good enough to keep the lights
From flickering, a way to fight without harm
A way to get to hospitals turning left and right
Through all those roads and bridges. Food helps
But if you can’t make it, you can fake it fine
with microwaves and styrofoam. Make whelps
Of cat or dog or child, and walk the cultural line
In your community. All you need is love
And enough money to get away this summer
Somewhere cool, the coast, anywhere to dispose of
The pent up tension that builds in hot midsummer
All you need is love, a retirement plan that works
All you need is love, and to share your available perks
