    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    A-B-C-B’s boring
    I prefer the haiku

    Roses are red violets are blue, there isn’t enough you, to pursue. You couldn’t fulfill my prestige wanting in a man in this love poem you present. Don’t you know action speaks loader then words. How dare you attempt to womb me with your lustful desires, only a fool would sell her body to the next worthless boy. Your wisdom is so poorly shown through the immature, provoking attributes of your 59 year old dusted skin. Don’t you know roses are pink, violets are purple. You can’t close your eyes to the outcasted flowers, though they have beauty two. Your ryms don’t persuade my love but your vibrations of feel, touch, sight, smell, and hearing give me reason. There is only one God that desirves faith, if your faith is in women then find the vulnerable ones that look for faith in what they see. Marriage is not for me because it requires faith that I don’t feel driven to give to a human.
