    Harsh!

    Roses are red
    Spring, Summer, or Fall
    If you can't say aught nice
    Say nothing at all

    [pedantic tangent] I believe the OP envisioned variations on "Roses are Red" that weren't all that, erm, nice. If we can't post comments faithful to the OP, then what's the point of keeping the thread open? [/pedantic tangent]
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Violets are blue
    Roses romantic
    Who else is feeling
    Like being pedantic?
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Dandelions eaten.

    Roses are red
    And grow where they will
    The OP can morph
    Rest easy and chill!

    Violets are purple
    Roses are red
    OP's have never
    Dictated a thread

    Leicester is red,
    Stilton is blue,
    Cheddar is gorgeous
    And Gloucester is too.
    And Gloucester is too.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Blue is the violet
    Green is the oak
    I get the feeling
    I'm missing the joke.

    Which makes me the OP'er I guess, what an inspiration!


    Glads may be yellow
    so is my pee
    naughty, nice, rude
    these poems may all be
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Daffs too are yellow,
    And so should be pee,
    But if you eat beetroot,
    Red it will be.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Your pee may be red
    You may think it hilarious
    But what will it be
    After eating asparagus?

    It seems to me that the purpose of this thread was amusing "anti-Valentines", and as it's now nearly three months since 14th February, maybe it's time to put it to bed until next year.

    Thanks for all your amusing verses!

    Roses are red
    Piglets our host
    One of these
    We love the most...
  • Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    A poor stubbed toe
    Turns rainbow hue
  • Fawkes CatFawkes Cat Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Violets aren't grey,
    Piglet's restored the thread,
    Hip, hip, hooray.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are lovely
    And thrive in the rain.
    Delighted to see
    This thread open again.
  • Roses for you
    Violets for me
    Glad the thread's open
    Amusing you and me
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Some flowers are white,
    Few seem to be black,
    We're all very glad
    This thread's not got the sack.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Violets are blue
    And roses are red
    I'm glad to be posting
    Here on this thread.
  • CathscatsCathscats Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue,
    And I'm another
    Rejoicing with you.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are some other colour on the spectrum
    It's good to see
    The quality of poetry has remained unchanged.

    Roses are red and violets are blue
    But sometimes it's quite hard to do
    To make sure the rhymes
    Are right at all times
    And the scansion and rhythm is too.

    Roses are red

  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Sunsets are red
    The sea, so blue
    Grass is growing
    Mosquitoes too.
  • PriscillaPriscilla Shipmate
    Squashed mossies are red
    Squashed flies are red too
    At least when they're dead
    They can't annoy you.
  • CathscatsCathscats Shipmate
    My mossies squash black
    My flies squash black too
    My monochrome world
    Must be boring to you.

    (Seriously, your mossies squash red? They have blood?)

    Sorry to continue the tangent, but if they have just bitten someone (or something) they will be full of blood.
    :frowning:

    Now back to poetry (?).
  • balaambalaam Shipmate
    Black squish the mosses,
    Yellow squish guppies
    If you want to squish red
    You'd better use puppies.

    You've never seen me in Real Life, have you? :mrgreen:

    Roses are red
    Piglets* are cute
    I once played the piano
    And also the flute

    * actual piglets, not this one!
  • Roses are red
    Piglets are tasty
    With crackling and apples
    And lashings of gravy
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Point of order!

    "Tasty" doesn't rhyme with "gravy" ... :wink:
  • There's nothing wrong with a half-rhyme now and then, especially if accompanied by roast potatoes.

    Suggesting eating a host might be against the spirit of the game. :mrgreen:

    Do you think that Doc Tor
    Will roast nearly as well?
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    If true, go for it,
    Take care in hell.
    If not, beware, he may

  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are smelly
    Peppers are spicy
    Eating your hosties
    Is not very nicey.

    My reminder to me
    That roses are red
    Must daily call in to see
    Posts in this thread

    :)
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Happy Mother's Day
    To you!

  • Seeing no roses
    No violets around
    Frost in the air
    Frozen's the ground

    (a late spring)
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    But I've been blue
    One leg won't work
    And I broke leg two.
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Other flowers various.
    It seems this thread's taken
    A turn for the serious.

    In Spring trees sprout leaves,
    Oak, beech or larch.
    Mother's Day here
    Was 31st March.

    The reason for this
    Turn to the serious
    Is that roses are red
    But the posters delirious.

    Roses are red
    So says my momma
    I hope you know
    You're minus one comma.

    Oops, said she,
    With an embarrassed look,
    "Apostrophe"
    Is the missing hook.

    Roses are red
    Peonies frilly.
    Hope you soon
    Feel better, Lily.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Some light; some deep.
    The cast comes off
    In five more sleeps!
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Narcissus white.
    Your leg will feel
    Extra light.
