Cupid’s Brother

hardly anyone knows
about Cupid’s brother
twins they are, much alike

wherever Cupid goes
his brother follows

us mere humans
really only ever hear
about the first
wielding his bow
with love’s true aim
making people
fall in love
head over heels

but Stupid is never
far behind
his weapon of choice
a blunt rock
his aim in nothing
the lesser of his brother’s
dealing damage
as only true love can

the arrow in the heart
blinds and numbs
the rock to the head
is hardly felt
and is, therefore, the most
dangerous of the two

just remember that
the arrow of Cupid
is closely chased by
the rock of Stupid

enjoy love before it hits
