What Is Love?  


what is love?


what is love?
love is to make a date
be on time, never make someone wait
be on time, never late

dates after dates
a date, eventually becomes a mate
a house mate or a room mate
a life partner -- the mate!

sooner or later
love gets a rebate
sooner or later
rebates develop into debates!

debates, more debates
different pusle, different heart rates
someone will soon walk out the gate
this is when love becomes hate

Tate and Kate, partnership in hate!
mate will no longer be a mate
find another mate?
better do it now, else too late?

love, an attribute innate?
or you need to press a button to activate?
