10 alternative Roses Are Red poems that are far funnier than the original

Roses are red, violets are blue, we can write poetry, how about you?

ROSES ARE RED, violets are blue, and the internet’s full of poets now too.

In fairness, it IS Valentine’s Day: It was bound to happen.

Twitter has been abuzz with romantic poetry since the crack of dawn, but it’s the alternative Roses are Red poems that are really catching our eye.

Some are factual.

Others are practical.


And another few are almost contractual.

From modern declarations.

To historical creations.

And language that’s only understood in certain nations.

The poems just keep coming from far and wide, warning some Twitter users that they may need to run and hide.

The internet isn’t feeling romantic on this rather special day, and there’s only one person who knows just what to say.
