    Desert wines are sweet,
    Fine wines are dry.
    I say, "Sod 'em,
    Gomorrah we die."
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets chic
    Who else is glad
    It's the end of the week?
  • SusanDorisSusanDoris Shipmate

    Roses are red
    SusanDoris a dame.
    I struggled to find
    A rhyme for her name.

    This thread makes me smile,
    In difficult days
    That's really worthwhile.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red
    And yellow and pink.
    Let's give all our posters
    A smile and a wink.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses in gardens
    Peat in a bog
    I'm more in the mood
    For a cuddle and snog.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are yellow,
    As yellow as butter.
    You set Miss Amanda's
    Petticoats aflutter!
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Some roses are black
    As black as a tomb
    Could all of you snoggers
    Please go get a room?
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    Roses are red
    Poppies too
    You are just jealous
    no snogging for you.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate

    These poems? Oh, groan.
    But some do tickle
    My funny bone.

    Roses love sunshine
    Hostas love shady.
    It would be the first time
    I made out with a lady.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red
    And love soil that is shady.
    Rest assured, dude:
    Miss Amanda's no lady!
  • SusanDorisSusanDoris Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Cambridge light blue
    An old rowing gold
    Was part of the crew

    A friend told me this
    I failed to turn on
    To watch the boat races
    On the televis ee on

    Red is the rose
    Fragrant the thyme,
    "Woman"'s a word
    That is hard to rhyme.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Red roses keep growin'
    Bad oarsmen go swimmin'
    Easier than "woman"
    Is rhyming with "women".
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Weeding's a drag.
    More than one woman
    Makes me sound like a slag.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Violets are bloomin'.
    No need at all
    To stick to a woman.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Some of the time
    "Bloomin'" and "woman"
    Don't really rhyme
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses have prickles
    Puppies have bounce
    Perhaps it depends
    On how you pronounce.

    Prickles on roses
    Feathers on birds
    The same could be said
    Of any two words.

    Roses are red
    And keep well on ice.
    Near rhyme's a valid
    Poetic device.

  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Commies are red
    And violate norms
    Near-rhyme's not suited
    To all poem forms
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    A number one gift
    Are you sure you are not too
    Conservative?
  • The5thMaryThe5thMary Shipmate
    Roses are red; they grow in this region.
    If I had your face, I'd join the Foreign Legion!

    How 'bout skipping church
    And staying in bed?

    Flowers have pollen
    Branches have pith
    It all depends whom
    You stay in bed with


    Mousethief, are you going to have a pithy party?! Although, it would be a pithy if I didn't get to meet you and your wife sometime!
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Of love they're a token.
    Near rhyme is out --
    The high priest has spoken!
  • Rosé wine spilled so
    go get a sponge
    UK police arrested
    Julian Assange

    Violets aren't fresh
    and he grew a beard
    Americans want to
    jail him for many years
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Near rhyme rules!
    Nice to see it used
    On Ship of Fools.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are flowers
    A post is a stanchion
    Near rhyme is grating
    As is bad scansion.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are pretty
    They bud. They bloom.
    Control what is said?
    No, let's not presume.

  • Roses are flowers
    violets are too
    we rhyme when we want to
    don't like it? you can eat poo!
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are red

    Forgive me the fuck
    If I say what I do and don't like
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    Roses are read,
    you like what you do
    And other people people
    are not quite like you.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Carnations are pink
    People are not like me?
    Duh. Really? Ya think?
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    If I were a poet
    I'd have managed to make this scan too.
  • The5thMaryThe5thMary Shipmate
    Roses are plentiful,
    You do the math-o-lic.
    I gave it up for Lent,
    And now I'm not a Catholic.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Perfume from roses
    Merlot from merle
    Some of these poems
    Make my toes curl.
  • Toe curling roses
    Violets that smell
    Some of these poems
    Are appropriate for Hell
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red --
    When faded, they're worthless.
    The devil quotes poetry
    For his purpose.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Don't cause dissention
    Don't cause a schism
    Apparently the poetry here
    Is above criticism
  • Roses are thorny
    Violets aren't sexy,
    neither's the devil
    But he is quite horny
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host

    Your what are pink? :worried:

    His apostrophes -- blushing out of shame.
  • PigwidgeonPigwidgeon Shipmate
    I assume the apostrophes indicate that Rose and Violet are women who own something that is red or blue respectively, but that the one Piglet owns is pink.
    :wink:

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    Not open to critics?
    I'm sure that's not true.

    Got it in one! :smiley:

    I had a feeling that the Apostropher Royal would have something to say about that one ...

    Roses are red

    If you were my gal
    I'd want to conceal ya.
