Roses Are Red 2011

Roses do pale
Compared to your beauty
Your angelic face
And your smoking booty

Roses are red
I give them to you
As the smallest gesture
That my love is true

Roses are red
Tomatoes are redder
I like my pizza
Covered in cheddar

@};-s are :-)
And signify <3
Emoticons make me LOL
At least sort of

Giving her roses
Might get you humped
But not giving them
Could get you dumped

I gave her my heart
Along with a rose
Then how come I'm not
The one that she chose

It's that time of year again, time for the 5th annual Roses are Red showcase! For you longtime readers, you know the drill. For the first-timers, here are the guidelines:
     1) Poems must basically follow the standard Roses are red rhyme/stress scheme
     2) Your poem must include either "red"" or "roses"
     3) Anonymous posting is totally acceptable
     4) Submit as many poems as you like and be as creative as you like

For inspiration (or to have a good laugh), check out previous years' submissions: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010.

(Oh, and I fixed the line break problem, so <br /> after lines is not necessary)

Rose poems are rad
And are the solution
To combat this day
Please post your contribution

Like a Narnian creature
In my parrot-ape suit of red
I don't need no back-up singers
I've got puppets instead.

Dancing on the stage
Lips screaming red
Beware of my tune
I'll get stuck in your head!

My hair flaming red
I should have won
Song of the year
Cuz Dog days are done.

Roses are red,
Arsenal too.
I can't believe we're behind
To filthy Man U.!

Roses are red
Like the blood of a shrew
My ex should beware
I now dabble in voodoo!

Yes, these roses are red;
Day-old still smell great.
But spare me the dread,
don't tell me you're late...

Cindy likes roses
Or was it Susan?
Can be quite confusing

Want to contribute
A poem about a rose
Writers' block's caught me
Know how that goes?

Guess I'll come back later
When something pops in my head
Just gotta remember the rules
And include something about red.

One nice thing about Europe
Is that the roses in the park
Grow freely, to be enjoyed by all
And aren't copyrighted "Hallmark"
