‘Roses are red’: Twitter users put a twist on a Valentine’s classic
Valentine’s Day isn’t a big day for this lot.
It may be the most romantic day of the year, but it seems the internet is feeling a little bitter about Valentine’s.
Twitter users are sharing sad, bad and frankly odd versions of the age-old poem, roses are red, violets are blue.
Not all roses are red.— the dead author (@thedeadauthor) February 14, 2018
If violets were blue,
They wouldn't literally be called "violet".
I am bad at poetry,
But not as bad at botany as you.

Violets are blue,
Valentine’s Day puts an unnecessary amount of pressure on couples to publicly display their affection when realistically we should be secure enough not to feel compelled by social obligation to do so,

Violets are blue.
I can't write poetry,
Even for you.
Valentine's is great,
For couples its true.
Just remember to give yourself,
Unconditional love too.
