Roses Are Red...

Roses are great
But let's be honest
What you really wanted
Was a poetry contest
In the same spirit as the Haiku Challenge, I offer up another poetry challenge. This time, the rules are this: 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, Thursday Feb 15. Then come back on Friday, read the entries, and vote for your favorite by e-mailing me or contacting me via the contact page. The winner will get a big smootch from yours truly or some other just as worthless "prize". (Remember, put a <br> after each line to get it to display correctly)

Roses do swell
My nose to pure blue.
For as you may guess,
I have a terrible alergic reaction to roses. Red ones. Seriously. It is life threatening. I have a medic alert bracelet on my left wrist. oh wait. I guess I took it off to shower last night and forgot to put it back on. But it is in the bathroom. In fact, I should probably go find that. Umm. Cows go MOO.

My state is RED
And your state is BLUE
But we both elect WHITE guys
So why boast the hue?

generally speaking

sugar may be sweetlike
and yes you may all sew

your sauce crimson red
and your cheese nice and melty
when love tastes so good
who wants to eat healthy?

My announcement poem totally doesn't count as my entry, so here it is:
Red roses are nice
But my modus operandi
Is to hell with the flowers
And bust out the candy

He didn't get me roses
and I am seeing red
There is no room
tonight in my bed!
