Over at dVerse, since Valentines day is over, Shanyn has challenged us to write love poetry that’s short and maybe “not so sweet” using non-traditional love poetry words. So here’s my attempt:
Roses are red, or that’s what some think
but sometimes they’re yellow and sometimes they’re pink
Sometimes they’re white, what do you think of that?
And if that’s not enough they’re occasionally black
So if you think that they just have to be red
get that silly notion right out of your head
And don’t get me started on violets blue
A violet is violet (a purplish hue)
I’d like to see love poems more accurate, see?
These colour-blind poets, they sure annoy me!
