70 Roses are Red Violets are Blue Jokes

The origins of the classic rhyme in question can be traced all the way back to 1590, where they appeared in the epic poem, The Faerie Queen, written by Sir Edmund Spenser. Back then, the poem was written to reflect classic Elizabethan virtues such as temperance, chastity, virtue, and friendship, all of which were embodied by various knights. In their travels, those knights, and their values, would be tested. It’s probably a good thing they all died long ago because as much as I’m sure virtue can kill a dragon, those knights wouldn’t have lasted five seconds on Tinder before laying down their swords for good.

Speaking of laying down the sword, here are seventy spins on that good old “roses are red, violets are blue” poems that so many of us learned as kids. Some are naughty, some are nice…most you probably shouldn’t send to anyone you actually like.
