A couple of accurate and funny poems by Wendy Cope.

Two cures for love

1)Don't see him. Don't phone or write a letter.

2)The easy way:get to know him better.

I worry

I worry about you -
So long since we spoke.
Love,are you downhearted,
Dispirited, broke?

I worry about you.
I can't sleep at night.
Are you sad? Are you lonely?
Or are you all right?

They say that men suffer,
As badly, as long.
I worry, I worry,
In case they are wrong. (Wendy Cope 'Serious Concerns' 1992).
