Love 11
Tell Tale Heart?

Are animals insulted
When compared to human nature?
Can a man or woman
Stand upon their own two feet?
Must sentiments of affection
Be overtly displayed with cards and candy,
Or diamonds and lace and only celebrated
On a day that honors a Saint who broke rules
To marry couples in love?


“In each human heart are a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale.
Diversity of character is due to their unequal activity.”
-Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (1842-1914)
American journalist and writer

Alongside a woodcut portrait of Valentine, the text states that he was
a Roman priest martyred during the reign of Claudius Gothicus. He was
arrested and imprisoned upon being caught marrying Christian couples
and otherwise aiding Christians who were at the time being persecuted
by Claudius in Rome.
