Valentine’s day

Back in ancient Rome,
Valentinus was wedding solider men,
Rome didn't like that,
So they put him in a prison pen.
His jailer's name was Asturius,
Whose daughter Valentinus healed,
Rome didn't take to being curious,
So Valentinus' fate was sealed.
They cut off his head, 
And put him away,
Now he was dead,
To see no future day.
Then Shakespeare later on,
Got all romantic about the story,
Writing verse of this Christian pawn,
In all its details gory.
This has been the brief inaccurate history,
Of how Valentine's Day came to be,
But all it really gave us,
Were corny heart-shaped candy.
