Jumbotron poetry

If you're submitting a text message to the jumbotron during a Caps game, in front of thousands, make sure it's your best work.

To wit:
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Ovi is a beast
I love you mom

What, praytell, do flowers have to do with a child's love for a parent and the beastliness of the Great 8? Holy unclear linkages, batman.

For a traditional poem, it doesn't rhyme, and it's not quite weird enough to pass as modern or experimental.

In contrast:

Julie wants wings and I want Varly.

Now there's a lot of story packed into 7 words.
