Roses are red...

Editor's Note:  We received a "roses are red" poem from Naomi.  At the end of the poem, she claimed to have "thrown [our] magazine in the toilet."

Dear Naomi,

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Your poem is rejected
And so are you*

Best regards,

* Though we're only saying that now because you hurt our feelings.
Were you out of toilet paper?  I mean I almost cried.

  1. of course was rejected...roses are red and the SKY -not the violets- is blue! Violets are... violet!

  2. To be fair to Naomi, her second line was indeed
    "violets are not blue, they are violet"
    So we couldn't reject on those grounds.
