  • Roses are red
    Variants are scary
    More infectious and deadly
    Everyone should be wary

    Roses are red

    They don't stop infection
    Until 4 weeks post injection

    I saw a mask protest
    It wasn't hilarious
  • Second rhymes with beckoned
    Third rhymes with bird

    And so does sixth (sort of)

    Roses are jolly,

    How about you?
  • Roses are red
    The buns they are cross-less
    Disappeared while baking
    Perhaps its symbolic?

    (This happened this year. Different oven as we moved house.)
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate

    Dark is the chocolate,
    Golden the toffee;
    I'll be having one later
    With my cup of coffee.
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Gone is the chocolate
    Working the diet
    I was doing just fine
    Til I read this riot
  • @NOprophet_NØprofit
    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.

    You started this thread, with this post, in February 2019, before the word pandemic was even on the horizon of our common, daily speech. Perhaps you are more of a prophet than you thought.
  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    NOprophet's a prophet
    How about you?
  • :blush:

    Roses aren't blue
    Snow isn't red
    I started the thread
    When worried 'bout flu

  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Buns and cake a fiddle
    Each one a doughnut
    Around my middle
  • Roses are red
    Waistbands get tighter
    If you keep scoffing chocolate
    To fuel an all-nighter
  • Roses are red
    rare vaccine blood clots
    mean the risk is much lower
    to take the AZ shot
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose,
    Blue is the sea.
    We're all going to miss
    Golden Key.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Blue is the violet
    Tangled the vine.
    I'll soon be having
    A nice glass of wine.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Puppies are playful
    Kittens are frisky
    You keep drinking wine
    And I'll drink my whisky.

    A single malt.

    Now I've got an earworm:

    Bye bye, Miss American Rye ...

  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Blue is the violet
    Brown is the deer.
    My thanks to you both
    For that worm in my ear.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Pot shops, ubiquitous
    I do not imbibe
    Be it benign or iniquitous.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Black the rose
    And London cabs.
    I've heard about
    The Joints for Jabs.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose
    Blue is the sea

    There's stir fry for tea.
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Caterpillars hairy
    Off on retreat tomorrow
    The prospect is scary.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose,
    Acidic the lime.
    I'm sure you'll have
    A wonderful time.

    Blue is the violet,
    Yellow the hay.
    How long are you going
    To be away?
  • Roses are red
    Some people aren't breathing
    Killed by the Covid
    From the premier's dithering

    (After 2 months of no restrictions, a 435% increase in cases in 3 weeks, we finally have a mandatory mask order and vaccination passports. It's been terrible.)
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Red are the roses
    Prayerful the time
    I’ll be on shore leave
    ‘Cos I’ll be offline!

  • You find retreats scary?
    Oh Miffy, my dear
    I wish I could go
    I'd trade in a heartbeat.

    While roses are red
    I'm not needing flowers.
    I do wish my surgeon
    Wonderful powers.

    Monday's the day
    I hope they are ready
    the hospital stays open,
    and the scalpel holds steady.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose
    Hot is the chilli.
    Sending you virtual hugs,
    Dear Lily.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    Praying it all
    Goes smoothly for you.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red

    Wondering, Lily,
    How things are for you?
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose,
    Golden the bee.
    Have you put up
    Your Christmas tree?
  • DoublethinkDoublethink Admin, Purgatory Host

    With thorn is the rose,
    With scorn do I see
    Those who propose
    The premature, untimely, Christmas tree

  • Roses are red
    Concrete is grey
    We prefer Christmas Eve
    But settle for some Saturday after St. Nicholas Day
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose
    Noisy the jet.
    To just clarify:
    Mine isn't up yet.
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Some roses are red,
    Some others are white
    My tree's going up
    Next Saturday night.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I think that ours
    Might be too.

    I'd do it earlier
    But it might then
    Incur the wrath
    Of Mr Nen.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Holly is green
    Mom had so much
    It's missed just now
    Berries and such

    My poetry
    Lacks a rhyme or two
    I'm still on meds
    At least that's my excuse!
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    Great to see Lily!
    How are you?

    @Lily Pad :smiley:
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Eleven days
    Left to go
    Then I may walk
    They tell me so!
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    I hope it all
    Goes well for you.

    Roses are perfumed,
    Reindeer are prancing.
    Is there a timetable
    For the tap-dancing? :wink:

    Red is the rose,
    And green is the Grinch.
    I don't put up a tree,
    so the "when" is a cinch! :naughty:

    My tap dancer
    Days rest in "ago".
    I've gone to pot
    Don't you know.

    Lost too, the fling,
    The sword dance too.
    I'll stay and serve
    The punch, in lieu.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose
    Sparkly the trinket.
    You serve the punch
    And I'm happy to drink it.
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Red is the rose
    And hot is the chilli
    How lovely to see
    once again, our dear Lily!

    @Lily Pad :)
