Roses Are Red

So I've been trying to come up with a clever idea for a valentine for my dear eldest sister, who's off in college and appreciates my sense of humor. Once again, V-day has sneaked up on me, and, once again yet again, I am put on the spot to try to think of clever things to put in my valentine's cards to family members. After all, the only other alternative is something mushy, which is obviously out of the question. Good ideas never seem to jump out at me to begin with, but I've always managed to pull through with them every year.

The "Roses are red" type poems are fun to compose, so I've been trying to think of some. Here's a few that have been made up by either myself or my family.

At first I thought of this one, which reflects my feeling on my current ability to compose clever poetical statements:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
This poem is very
Pid comma stu

It took a while for some people to get that one... Anyway, this next one was inspired by the movie Up, and cracks me up every time I read it:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Elly is dead
And soon Carl too

It's proof that I have a sadistic sense of humor. And if you've seen the movie, the extra emotional attachment improves the joke. :)

My favorite is still the poem that my brother Eric came up with last year, though, and so I'll end with it:

Roses are red
Monkeys have bones
I'd give you my heart
But I'm not Davy Jones
