Valentine's Day Contest

Katy Cunningham of Brooklyn, NY

To David "or something" Biskup


Or Something

Listen

Your signature line "or something"
Ends your thought each time or Something.
You're my Valentine, but something,
Something's got to change --

Or I might lose my mind or something --
Leave New York behind or something,
But you're so damn fine or something,
I stay here deranged.

'Cause your eyes are precisely the blue Of the skies.
Your hands understand me and hold me Just right.
Unequivocally -- you're the man of my Dreams.
It's true I love you, David. Definitely.

Don't need something new, or something
Borrowed, something blue, or something
Perfect -- just need you. You're Something
Sweet, and I'll admit --

Guess I've said a few "or somethings,"
"Or whatevers," too -- and some things
Kinda sorta true; now I'll say
Something and commit:

Your eyes are precisely the blue of the Skies.
Your abs are of concrete and steel.
Unequivocally -- you're the man of my Dreams.
It's so true I love you, David. Definitely.

When you see something you say, "or Something."
I always feel safe for something
Tells me you're so brave -- you're Something
Of a Kung Fu star.

You always save my day or something
In your David way. And one more thing:
I think you're really something
Just the way you are.

Your eyes are precisely the blue of the Skies.
Your smile is so warm and so real.
Unequivocally -- you're the man of my Dreams.
Yes, it's strue I love you, David. Definitely.
