A Cynical Love Story

They fell in love quite typically,
The common apparatus --
He loved her for her looks, and she,
She loved him for his status

And all of it seemed cynical, 
Except, one day, they found,
With time and common property
They'd come to common ground

As he had come to love her mind,
And she his probity,
For he was more than money, and
She far more than

A body
