Emotion smotes the potent notion,
Lubricates mind to motion,
Sets us up and apart from the,
Cold-blooded fishes of the ocean.

Emotion is cranial grease,
A pumping blood flow release,
Compelling feeling increase,
Overcome the fearsome beast.

Emotion is no small notion.
A sea larger than any ocean.
Rudderless, a single sanction.
That never finds satisfaction.

Love is a powerful emotion.
Casts out hate without motion.
Soothes the mind like a lotion,
Floats on a perpetual ocean.

Hate is a fruitless emotion.
Eats the heart out by accretion.
Pounds you with its punctuation.
Like a violent surfless ocean.
The raging surf that is emotion
