3rd Annual Roses are Red Poetry Slam

Red roses and candy
Is what she really wants
Instead of this poem
Written in funny fonts

I'm posting this a little earlier than usual in hopes that it gives everyone a chance to get their entries in for the 3rd annual BdW Roses are Red Poetry Slam*. As always, your poem must:
    * be 4 lines long
    * follow the standard ABCB "Roses are red" rhyme/stress pattern
    * make reference to either "red" or "roses"
For inspiration (or glorious, glorious diversion) check out entries from year 1 and year 2.

Submit your entries via the comments portion of this post. Feel free to use a pseudonym if you'd rather not have people know it was your poem. Feel free to submit more than once. Feel free to cover any topic and be as creative as you like, as long as you follow the rules*.

Now let the poems roll!

ok, right off the top of my head, first try at this.
Roses are good
But so is this Snack Pack
Alone on V-Day?
Bust out the Cognac.

I just have to say, as I was reading back from year 1 & 2, Andrew's poems made me laugh out loud for a while. I don't know what he's going to write, but I vote for Andrew! ...*sP.S.
Roses are white
Lipstick is red

Roses are red
although some of 'em are pink
I need a job
and the stark market stinks.

Your roses are red,
and your doves have all flown.
The soundtrack for my love,
is a sad trombone.

Stacy's lips are red
As is her face
After learning that on this blog
Unrolloverable asterisks have no place

Roses are red
Candy is sweet
Men get more sex
When they put down the seat

You say that you love me
I believe that is true
But no stupid rose
Is the proof that you do

What!? If a rose isn't proof
That my love is sincere
Then forget that diamond bracelet
Oh, and get me a beer!

Roses are nice
But they're kinda thorny
I much prefer men
Who are--um, er, corny.

Sometimes roses
Do their magic
But avoid candy with peanuts.
The results
Could be tragic.

My hands are all sweaty
My face is all red
I am so ready
Let's hit the bed
