2nd Annual Roses Are Red Poetry Contest

It's that roses time of year
And I find myself single again
So for a creative outlet
I turn to Blog du Wren*

Yep, folks, it's that time of year again. Put on your rhyming hats and get ready for the 2nd annual BdW Roses Are Red Poetry Contest. The rules are the same as last year: your poem must follow the standard ABCB "Roses are red" rhyme/stress pattern, it must make reference to either "red" or "roses", and it must be completed by 11:59 pm PST, Friday Feb 15. After that, come back and vote on your favorite poem (please e-mail me or use the contact page so voting can stay anonymous*). Check out last year's entries for inspiration (and a good laugh. They were seriously awesome. When I went back and read them, I busted my gut all over again. Esp. Chris's about red and blue states–so great).

Last year's I've read

Who makes my heart burst

My toesies are red
my spirit is blue
its cold here in B-more
And I've got the Flu.
(While it is cold, I do not have the flu, just in the interest of full disclosure.)

Roses are rad
Violets are boss
Me without you is like
pizza without sauce

All you need is love
So the Beatles say
But a gift of red roses
Helps out along the way.

Lipstick is red
Hickies are green
Some expressions of love
are better left unseen
(if ya know what I mean...)

Some roses are red
But many are pink.
When love makes you blue
All roses stink!

philosophers ponder
poets they rhyme
about love and red roses
in the unemployment line
v-day is about love
diamonds, roses and thanks
from the florists and jewelers
laughing all the way to the banks

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Or so I am told
Because I have cataracts.

Roses are red
But can appear black
When the person you love
Doesn't love you back

We got twice as many poems submitted than votes for winners. In one sense, that is great because the poems are the most fun part. In another sense, it is a bummer because a)it means people aren't participating :( and b)I don't get to give out any credit for a winner, because it was hardly a quorum************************
