Roses are red 
Daisies are plainer
You put my heart
On a permanent retainer 

 *** 

There is no established precedent
For how much I love you! 

 *** 

SCOTUS may be short one judge
And Congress is brand new
But my heart is filled to full
With Valentine's love for you! 

 *** 

Blue is the violet
Red is the rose
You’re the special someone I want to depose 

 *** 

Your objections
Have overruled my senses 

 *** 

My summary judgment?
You’ve got appeal! 

 *** 

My Funny Valentine
You make me smile
With your jurisprudence. 

 *** 

I love you, and so
You love me, dear.
Quid pro quo

Hoping our love is on a partnership track!

 Casus belli, sua sponte
Ad hoc and quid pro quo
I love you more than words can say
You legal so-and-so!
