    Roses are red,
    Of that I am certain;
    I cleaned my hands
    By using the curtain.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Boards are graying
    Nails are rusting
    You two wankers
    Are sure disgusting

    To cultivate roses
    Bucks all the trends.
    What's a wank or two
    Between two friends?
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Gales are gusty.
    Wash the curtain
    Before it goes crusty.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses have thorns,
    Acorns the quercus,
    Hold on to your hats,
    We're off to the Circus.
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    If roses are red
    And dirt turpitude,
    From another thread
    Vacuum in the nude.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Grapes grow on a vine.
    Look at you in the nude?
    I'd rather go blind!
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Seeing Enoch in the nude?
    I would go blind too.
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Of love folks may sing,
    But as for being naked
    I'm not offering.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Posies are pretty.
    Alas and alack,
    More's the pity. :blush:
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Cute they may be
    But get too close
    Ouch! Quite thorny.

    Some of these poems don't scan very well
    And they rhyme bad also.

    I have terrible trouble writing poems that scan,
    Do you?

    Violets are purple
    Roses they glow
    I did the scan joke and rhyme jokes
    Over a month ago.

  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are damp
    Violets are wetter
    Since that time
    It ain't got no better
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red
    And their cost is steep,
    Which makes the Baby Jesus
    And his Blessed Mother weep.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Yellow, black, pink and white.
    Daisies are cheap
    If your money is tight.
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Deep plumb and dark.
    Also they're free
    If pinched from the park.
  • balaambalaam Shipmate
    If you pinch from the park
    Don't go there too soon,
    They're not even in bud
    Not blooming till June.
  • Roses are red,
    Tulips are too,
    In bloom in the park,
    If you want some noo,
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Yellow are daffs,
    They're everywhere now,
    But pinching them's naff.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Violets are blue
    Or so we suppose
    But I'd rather you sent me
    One Perfect Rose
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses are red.
    Their leaves are green,
    They're a much cheaper bed
    Than a limousine.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses can sing
    Their tune is catchy
    However, their leaves
    Can often be scratchy
  • balaambalaam Shipmate
    Roses are pink,
    Men give them to femmes.
    As for the pricks
    They're found on the stems.
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    And in honour of today's march and the petition that now has over 4M signatures.

    Labour is red
    Tory is blue
    And they're both led by people
    Who've no-platformed you.

    Gypsophila
    Is Baby's Breath.
    This thread seems
    To have died a death.

    Red is the rose
    Green is the nettle
    Is it just taking
    A while to settle?
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Violets are blue,
    As blue as the sky.
    Old threads mellow -
    They never die.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    They sweeten with age
    Easy to find as they
    Move down the page.

    Roses are red
    The cantuta Bolivian.
    Wouldn't they normally
    End in Oblivion?
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red
    And favored by Vivian.
    Whatever its fate
    It's now out of Oblivion.

    We'll wind up in Limbo

    the end of May
    be in mid April.

    Roses need sunshine
    And watering's critical.
    I hope this thread
    Doesn't get too political.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Clover is green.
    To keep it apolitical
    We all are keen.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    A dead rose is brown
    A dead tree's a stump
    I hope that we don't all
    Start speaking of Trump

    Roses are red,
    Ivy is poison.
    Babies in church
    Can be quite noisome.

    Poems should rhyme

    Fall short time to time.

  • Roses are red,
    So is some jelly,
    Did you really mean
    Babies are smelly?
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    thorns and leaves about.
    If there were no babies
    We'd all die out.

    Poems are read
    With cadence in mind
    One line answers?
    Write more. Be kind.

    Tigers are fast
    Roses are slow
    I'll die out
    Babies or no.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    As red as a cherry.
    No escaping Grim Reaper -
    Eat, drink, and be merry!
