If you could bottle up Love

It'd be too expensive, probably a crock.
People would spill it and some would
That precious substance, that love in a
There'd be weird commercials, and so many
"Buy love here, it's cheaper than stands."
Everyone would buy, except those who couldn't;

and others who wouldn't.
Crime would be rampant and love would be
It'd lose all it's meaning,
There'd be nothing to reap.

Then just remember
"He did that for me !!!"
