Roses are Dull

Why does anyone care for red roses?

Their scent alone is awfully violent

And the pain their thorns often impose is

Not worth the money many have spent

Yet still we oft worry about romance

And how important the rose seems to be

And yet one can say the same with a dance

The concept of flowers is lost on me

Why compare the beauty of a woman

To a small, frail, colored, and short lived plant

When one can actually be human

And speak to her in ways a flower can’t?

I know that flowers do spread elation

But I’d prefer a nice conversation



Need to talk?
