What Ever Happened To Roses Are Red?

January 21, 2011
Whatever happened to roses are red?

Whatever happened to violets are blue?

Whatever happened to lame poetry

That basically said “I love you”?

Now it’s all complex and emotional

Poetry surely has changed quite a bit

Personally, I don’t like free verse much

I like lame-o rhymes and their fit.
