Love Bite

by Andrew Tibbetts

Roses are red,

violets are blue,
I have nothing to say about love
That rhymes,

or fits inside some pre-ordained, rigid, sentimental, Petite-bourgeoisie metrical scheme.
So, bite me.

Perfect for the 27th of February, I think. I wonder if that's what the makers of those little candy "bite me" hearts had in mind? Were we supposed to eat them last? Ha! Good post, Andrew.

I love this Hallmark antedote. Ever thought of going into the greeting/holiday card business?
