Roses are Red Poems

This fantastic roses and violets picture is from

Roses are red poems... well, that's just utter nonsensical shit
Roses are flowers...that's a bridge...get over it
Poems about roses being red are doggerel at its worst
In 1590 Sir Edmund Spenser wrote this first

"She bath'd with roses red, and violets blew,
And all the sweetest flowres, that in the forrest grew".
(notice the appalling spelling)
It has spawned Valentine poems ever since
Enough to make every person over 16, wince
So why have I embarked upon this task?
My regular readers are entitled to ask

My piece entitled Roses are red poems continues....

Valentine's Day is Worldwide, you see
And 'roses are red' poems, obligatory
I'm perfectly willing to prostitute my art
For, as you well know, I'm a search engine tart

Roses are red, violets are blue
I'm schizophrenic
And I am too
Roses are often white, violets can be pink
It's time to end with this link, I think
Link coming after this

Roses are read,
Please do read my message spelt out with roses
I did it when I was sozzed
It wasn't easy to do
When I was writing 'prick'
I was'ed.

Roses are Red Poems

Lancastrian roses are red
Yorkshire roses are white
Don't even think to copy and paste
This is all my copyright
