Perhaps

Roses are red, and violets are blue

or so we've been taught, have you questioned if true?

 

Perhaps roses are flowers, and violets are too

Perhaps roses are me, and violets are you

 

Perhaps roses are mad, and violets are sad

Perhaps roses are good, and violets are bad

 

Perhaps roses are popular, and violets are not

Perhaps roses are preferred, and violets not sought

 

Perhaps roses are sharp, and violets are smooth

Perhaps roses are trendy, and violets old news

 

Perhaps roses are liberal, and violets conservative

Perhaps roses only take, and violets only give

 

Perhaps roses are night, and violets are day

Perhaps roses are straight, and violets are gay

 

Perhaps roses are chaos, and violets are order

Perhaps roses are freedom, and violets a border

 

Perhaps united we must stand, or divided we shall fall

Perhaps not so different, not so different after all
