Roses Are Red 2010

It's been a whole year now
I've got Rose poem withdrawl
So write up some good ones
At which I can guffaw
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I just wrote a poem
And so should you!

I won't get no roses
But that ain't so bad
'Cause I've got the internet
Oh wait, that is so sad

Roses are pricey
What's a guy to do?
Try your hand at
Writing a poem or two

It's that time of year again: time for the annual Rose are Red poetry slam here on BdW. This is a chance to let your poetic juices flow! The rules are easy: the poem must follow the standard ABCB "Roses are red" rhyme/stress pattern and it must make reference to either "red" or "roses"*. Topics can be anything you want – it doesn't have to be Valentine's Day related. Feel free to submit under pseudonyms or anonymously, and as often as you like.

For inspiration (or at least a couple of good laughs), take a look at previous years' showings: 2007, 2008, and 2009.

Rose are red
But their thorns make me bleed
Like how you only call
When there's something you need.

Talk of roses is fine
But if more books were read
Think how much smarter we'd be
Before we were dead.

In my garden grows a red rose
With stems long and skinny
I named if for my mom
Its called the "Queen Minnie."

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is granulated
This rhyme is imperfect

A rose is a rose
Is a rose is a rose
With this as my best try
I should stick to prose

The roses are dead
The violets are too
Next year I'll fertilize
With some fresh cow manure

The red rose may be pretty
But thorns grow right under
It looks like Reddit dot com
Has stolen your thunder.

Passing out flowers
and love that we're boasting
Sorry for the language
I should review links before posting

Roses like nature
Beautiful, simple and true
Just like this Haiku

Just moved to a new city
Got no one to to date
Means no complaints for no roses
Or for being a week late

Violets are small
Roses are thorny
I'd rather a call
When I'm feeling excited
