A humorous poem written for Grumpy's Short-Lived Poetry Contest
She caught me with her sister and she ran back out the door;
I sent a dozen roses so she wouldn't be sore no more.
Then, I went back home to see her expecting an embrace.
Instead, she slapped me with those roses right across my face!
Now, how was I supposed to know red roses she didn't like?
For instead of an embrace--I was told to take a hike.
