8th Roses Are Red Off

Hey, I've got an idea. Let's write Roses are Red poems right here on the blog. It'll be great. I'll write a few to get you started. Then you can contribute your own. Over the next week or so, you can check back to read the awesome ones other people write. How about we set the rules as every poem much contain either the word "roses" or "red" and must follow the standard Roses are Red rhyming/stress pattern.

Full disclosure: this is not a new idea. It's been done many times, some of which were right here on this blog! Check out posts from '13, '12, '11, '10, '09, '08, '07
Roses are red
And contain a bug or two
When we eavesdrop dear Angela*
We feel closer to you
Rosas son rojas
Mi chiquita bañana
Besa me esta noche
Don't wait for mañana
You shouldn't buy roses
If you really cared
Buy local instead
And our earth with be spared1
Roses are red
But such a frivolity
And I thought you believed
In gender equality
Here, take your roses
Now I've done my duty
Is that sufficient
For you to show me your booty?

St. Valentines Day
Doth fill me with angst
For I'm always concerned
I won't fit in my Spanx

Bannaners are yellow
Though not scared a bit
But caramel, nut n' cream 'em
And presto! They split!

Noses are red
From the blowing they do
What they're trying to say
Is I love ah-choo!

Roses are flowers
Grown in the park
Love is a concept
Invented by Hallmark

Again with the red nose?
Don't you notice my frown?
Why did I ever
hook up with a clown?

Saint Valentine's cards
And roses are dandy
But please keep your distance
I'm just here for the candy

The town is festooned
With hearts of pink and red.
Is it your love they desire
Or your money instead?
Or am I just a cynical old woman?

Roses are red
Flawless diamonds have a similar result
A man's wallet is bled
In the name of a marketing cult
