Another Four Letter Word

It’s just another four letter word,
that one that starts with L.
It can be the best thing you’ve ever heard,
or it can make you feel like hell.
It has been compared to the stars,
and bought billions in diamonds and roses,
But it’s just as responsible for filling up bars,
and causing a few broken bones and bloody noses.
It has made more than one husband and wife,
but it has dug more than a few graves as well.
It’s equally responsible for happiness and strife,
this four letter word that starts with L.
So, next time you feel this thing at first sight,
and hear birds singing inside of your mind –
Don’t get twitter-pated without a fight,
remember, four letter words are rarely kind.
