Love is the tender bond
that holds a couple strong.
But others around would abscond
with either right or wrong.
Why do outsiders feel
that they have rights to a view.
Layers of love they try to peel
praying dislocation will ensue.
It would be fairer for them
to provide good mutual support
and leave their personal phlegm
for a less invasive sport.
Respect those drawn in love,
glorify the chance they’re taking.
Give thanks to all who move
together and the bond that they’re making.
