Today being Valentine’s day and all, I decided to compose this love poem.
“Roses are red, violets are violet
my brother Poncho will never be quiet!
Some flowers are white, like freesia and such
and so is the snow, except where it’s slush.
Tiger lilies are orange with little black specks
kind of like ladybugs after they’re dead.
Sprigs of holly and such are usually green,
quite like the mold that on bread can be seen.
Carnations are pink, carnations are yellow
and I must inform you that I do not like jello.
Bleeding hearts are pretty in a pink of deep hue,
and plastic flamingoes often are, too.
There’s lots of flowers of all colors and shades
though none of them rhyme, so there’s not much I can say.
Violets are violet, roses are rose
and flowers are better sensed through the nose.”
I am sure you found that very romantic, didn’t you? In fact, much like the White Knight from Through the Looking Glass, I am suprised you aren’t crying right now. It always makes me cry! Oh, love!
PS: Dad got Mom some chocolate-covered strawberries for Valentine’s Day…. cue the “awwww”s!
