Roses Are Red Poetry Slam No. 9

It's that time again—to reluctantly and hastily dash off a few Roses are Red poems for that special someone. Well, that special someone for me is you, dear reader. So here are a few hastily dashed off poems to celebrate year number 9(!) of the Blog du Wren Roses Are Red poetry slam. Please leave your contributions in the comments below. Or, if you're not feeling the poetry bug, have a read back at the previous years ('14', '13, '12, '11, '10, '09, '08, '07)




It's late in the game
To beg your contribution
But the Roses are Red blog post
Is a BdW institution

Roses are red
With a hint of green
You've stolen my heart
And also my spleen

Twelve words about roses
Not a bouquet
My gift to you
OK?*



The day before Rose Day
Is a Friday quite ominous
Another scary thought?
My love for you is bottomess

Roses are pokey
Like your fresh trimmed moustache
And them kisses from you
Are so worth the rash

Roses embed
A love tasty and true
And our love runs sweet
Like milk chocolate fondue

Valentine's Day
With its Reds and its Pinks
Is too much for the Grinch
Who cries, "Yuck! Bah! This stinks!"

There won't be roses
On your trip from the Wheel
But we'd love to share
Aloha and a meal

I said "I could care less"
Which does not mean what you think.
And I hope that this V-Day
Is literally tongue-in-cheek.

Roses are red
The color of wine
After two glasses
I feel just fine :)

Measles are red
Cyanosis is blue
I'd drink some Ebola
To get smooches from you

Roses are red
This poem is late
Apologies for being tardy
But I was out on a date
