Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Wait, no they're not,
(What the hell's wrong with you?)
Roses are red,
Violets are violet,
Either is a better
love tale than twilit.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue
Lilies are white
Dandelions are yellow
Carnations are pink
Marigolds are orange
Delphiniums are kinda purpleish…
Where was I going with this again?
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Does gifting sex organs
Seem way weird to you?

Roses are red,
Violets are blue
Or purple, or yellow,
Or combinations thereof...
There's a lot of options, really.
And that's not even taking into account the fact that we can't see into the ultraviolet.
I'm just saying, things are complicated.
I think we should see other people.
While Rhyming on Roses
Your verse can be antic
Or technically accurate
(And quite pedantic.)
Violets aren't blue.
Twitter Jumps: "Actually!"
Then silence again.
There was a red flower synonymous
And one colored anti-eponymous
They were metrically married, in verse that's oft varied,
By a person who remains anonymous.

Roses are red
Violets are blue.
A kiss is not truth
But we wish it were true.
