a realistic dose of cynicism

wednesday afternoon poetry.

roses are red,
violets are blue.
sugar is sweet,
but not as sweet as high fructose corn syrup.

roses are #ff0000,
violets are #0000ff,
and according to Photoshop carnations are #f0569a.

roses are red,
violets are VIOLET.
and light is a particle… or is it a wave?

roses are red,
violets are blue.
and planck’s constant is 6.626068 x 10^-34 m^2 kg sec^-1.

they say roses are red,
violets are blue,
but to me they’re grey,
because i’m colorblind. don’t judge.

roses are red,
violets are blue,
sugar is sweet,
but splenda makes my coffee taste funny.

roses are red,
violets are blue.
my heart goes into ventricular fibrillation
every time i see you.

roses are red,
violets are blue.
i’m in love,
just not with you.

roses are red,
violets are blue.
some poems rhyme,
but not this one.

roses are red,
violets are blue,
i am at work with nothing to do.

the roses have dried,
the violets are gone.
my garden is dying,
it must be lupus.

    i especially like
    “they say roses are red,
    violets are blue,
    but to me they’re grey,
    because i’m colorblind. don’t judge.”
    but wait is that true?

    my favorite is a take on this one:
    roses are red,
    violets are blue.
    some poems rhyme,
    but not this one.
    except that the last line is “but this one doesn’t”, cause it ends even more abruptly. its funny. really.

    there’s also
    “roses are #FF0000
    violets are #0000FF
    all my base
    are belong to you”
