Roses are Red 2012

@};- this is a rose
and (=^;^=) this is a cat
<3 can mean love
if you're nerdy like that
Five years of roses
shared here by ya'll
Let's make it 6
So don't drop the ball
Rose is my aunt
My uncle's named Steve
Maybe they've got a poem
Stored up their sleeve
What if our blood
was green and not red?
For Valentine's day
Would we give salad instead?
Ses*, order red roses!
To please Esael Pot*
about palendromic potery
Easy it's not
Our county's funds
Are deep in the red
So let's all move north
To Canada instead
To get your mind ready
To write your awesome rhymes
Have a look back
At the previous times ('11, '10, '11, '09, '08, '07)
                               _   _
With underscores and slashes  (  v  )
rather than roses or a dove    \   /
We nerds use ASCII art          \ /
To express our love              V

You all know the drill. Leave a poem (or two) in the comments below. Rules are as always: follow the Roses are Red rhyme scheme/stress pattern and use either "red" or "rose" in each poem. Feel free to post as anonymously and as often as you like.

Roses are red
And love must be blind
Because you're not that cute
Without all of that wine

things that are red
remind me of roses
big smoochy smooches
and rosey clown noses

thoueth arts red
whome thine calleth a rose
budding thornes whome doth poketh
whence admired from a nose

Roses are Meh,
Of course chocolate is greater.
But what makes me swoon
Is a baked pertater
(with butter, sour cream, bacon bits, chives...;)

Roses are all the chatter
But I want bacon
If you buy me the latter
It's love we'll be makin'

Rose are red
My kitchen's remodeled
For Valentines Day
I'll be hitting the bottle

Roses are red
We finished the kitchen
For Valentines Day
We'll stop all the bitchin'

I wish I was cheery red
Instead of somber blue
Waking up to no Friday Comic
Please tell me it isn't true!

Amid a harsh Balkan winter

Where all's too white, and not red,

But the girl by my side

Prefers a poorly-planned poem instead.
