    THESE ARE ENTRIES TO A WASHINGTON POST COMPETITION

    ASKING FOR A TWO-LINE RHYME
    WITH THE MOST ROMANTIC FIRST LINE,
    AND THE LEAST ROMANTIC SECOND LINE:

    1. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:
    Marrying you has screwed up my life.

    2. I see your face when I am dreaming.
    That's why I always wake up screaming.

    3. Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
    This describes everything you are not..

    4. Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss,
    But I only slept with you 'cause I was pissed.

    5. I thought that I could love no other
    -- that is until I met your brother...

    6. Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.
    But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl's
    empty and so is your head.

    7. I want to feel your sweet embrace;
    But don't take that paper bag off your face.

    8. I love your smile, your face, and your eyes
    Damn, I'm good at telling lies!

    9. My love, you take my breath away.
    What have you stepped in to smell this way?

    10. What inspired this amorous rhyme?
    Two parts vodka, one part lime.

    WHO SAID POETRY IS BORING

    ^ I thought I lived in wedded bliss,
    Then came the day that she saw this,
    Now my wedded days are over,
    I'm buried out back beneath the clover.

    I'll love you forever, I'll love you always, I'll love you 'TIL the end,
    Of course I only said that 'cuz I was dared to by my friend.

    "For better or worse, 'TIL death do us part," she said with an innocent voice,
    Now just 3 months later - it can't get much worse - it's apparent she made the wrong choice.

    from my kid

    To me, you are just like the sun, very wonderful at first;
    But after being exposed too long, you feel just like a curse.


    AND


    So many beautiful things -- the grass, the trees, the sun.
    But though many things are beautiful to me, you are not one.
