Roses are red, violets are blue...

Seems like a good day to write little not love poems. Please add one. Here's mine for today.

Roses are red, violets are blue
Vaccinate your lover
and don't get the measles.


Please add one.

    There's one all over the front page of one of the tabloids today -

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I love my four kids
    But it's off to rehab for Roo*

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue,
    Some poems rhyme
    This doesn't.
  • balaambalaam Shipmate, 8th Day Host
    Roses are red,
    violets are blue,
    I have terrible trouble writing poems that scan,
    Do you?
  • Pinched from somewhere - not sure where

    Roses are red
    Gender is performative
    Mass market romance
    Is heteronormative.
  • Roses are gray.
    Violets are also gray.
    I can't see colors,
    But I still think you're great.

    And thought of you.

    And chlamydia is
    My gift for you."

    Sugar is sweet
    So's maple syrple
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    They wither and die.
    You never will catch
    A gentleman's eye.
  • HuiaHuia Shipmate
    Roses are yellow,
    pink and maroon.
    Don't bother with violets,
    they die too soon

    As there were none from you.

    Violets are blue
    Roses are red
    Feeling so loved
    From what you've just said.

    :tongue: :wink:

    Roses are red,

    When I'm with you
    I watch my back.
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses are red.
    Violets are blue.
    I'm starting to wish,
    I'd never met you.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I didn't get sex
    and neither did you.
  • Violets are blue
    Roses are red
    I only love you
    When we're in bed
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Narcissus white,
    Try that with me
    And I'll put up a fight.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Salvias grey
    I'm not in the mood
    For a roll in the hay.
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    Roses were red
    My parents said
    Don't have kids
    The planets dead.
  • FirenzeFirenze Heaven Host
    Roses have greenfly
    Mildew and spot.
    Love is a thing
    I’d rather not.

    As an aside, I tripped over this earlier looking something else up, and found that the earliest reference to something similar dates back to Edmund Spenser in 1590, the original was published in a nursery rhyme book from 1784, so a long and venerable history.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Ties do bind.
    Tuesday is fat
    And so's your behind!
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Violets are blue,
    Roses are red,
    And I've paid for these flowers
    To get you to bed.

    And the reply,

    I've been past the garage.
    I've seen what they cost.
    If you think that'll win me,
    You can go and get lost.
  • Roses are pretty
    Violets are nice
    We know what you are
    Now I just need your price
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    I like roses red
    But you've brought cactus green.
    It's the mankiest present
    That I've ever seen.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Cactus have spines,
    They sting and they prick.
    Face up to it, mate,
    You're a bit of a dick.
  • Roses are red
    Memes can be danky
    This is the first time I've read
    the word "manky"
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose
    Pink the carnation.
    The Ship is such
    An education.
  • Roses are groovy
    Violets are hip
    All that I know
    I learned on the Ship
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    We learn a lot here
    But is it all true?
  • Martinis are dry
    Manhattans are moister
    As long as you love me
    The world is your oyster
  • FirenzeFirenze Heaven Host
    Roses and oysters
    If you’re after romance.
    Beads and cloisters
    Strictly nae chance.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Lilies are white.
    The mere thought of you
    Gives me a fright!
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Oysters are grey
    Aphrodisiac food.
    You can ply me with them,
    I'm still not in the mood.
  • Roses are red
    Carnations are redder
    I'll find me a girl
    If she's willing, I'll bed 'er.

    And so are tulips.
    I'll win you over
    With a few mint juleps.

    Violets are blue
    They thrive in spring showers.
    I long for someone
    To give me some flowers.

    Buying me flowers
    Won't get me to bed.

    Flowers have pollen
    Branches have pith
    It all depends whom
    You stay in bed with
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses and violets
    May be the flowers that you pick.
    But you won't get a chick,
    If you're just a dick.

    Under the bed
    Go the undies, they say,
    That's how you find out
    Under-bed fluff is grey.

    Roses are red,
    Green is the sea,
    If you don't clean your bedroom
    You'll never have me.
