Some of my friends call me Red
Sometimes I think it is cute,
Because I am a red head
And sometimes it makes me want to give them the boot

It is not that I don´t like Red,
But if you want to be my pal
It is just a problem I have…
So don´t give me red clothes at all
Because I think red with red is way too red!

My lover had her arms crossed over her bosom
When I said I was going to change my hair to black
She said, “If you change you will need something red… maybe a red bottom.”
It is not necessary to say that the thought to dye my hair never comes back!

It is Christmas and my Santa wears blue and not the traditional red,
My lover accepts that the Xmas house decorations are all mine,
Well, except for outside that she decorated with white LEDs,
It was an agreement so we are fine.

It is not wise to go Christmas shopping with an upset red head
My love showed me a coat,
It had a beautiful cut, but pink with red,
I couldn´t help but pout!

She said, “Are you also going to throw a tantrum?”
I said, “What do I need to do to get it through your thick head?
It is not so hard to understand I don´t wear red!”
My feet hitting the floor tum, tum, tum!

With a frown my love said, “At home we are going to talk, hon.”
It means I will end up over her lap,
She will give me a pink and red bum,
I will get a lecture while she slaps,

I need to learn not to push her over the edge,
Apologies wouldn´t be enough; I wish I could take my words back
She has a standard, not stopping until “it is a nice red”
Good thing she doesn´t go for a “nice blue and black!”

    *clapping* Awesome poem! I wish I was better at writing them. 😀 Thanks for sharing.

    JB, your poem is very cute and funny, though you would think “Red” would’ve learned by now not to provoke her girlfriend! Although, maybe that is why she got her nickname, eh? Not a red top, but a red bottom! *LOL* Thanks for your gift. 🙂

    Great poem JB! Thank you for giving us such a sweet gift for Christmas.
    I wish I could write poetry but I’m told I’m poetically challenged. I once gave my sweetheart a bunch of flowers and sent a poem along with it. Even with all the flowers she wasn’t impressed with my poetry….after I worked so hard on it! (heaving a crushed sigh)

    Hey so fantastic JB! I loved it, and laughed out loud at “red with red is way too red” :D. Thanks so much for the lovely xmas pressie :).

    Brilliant poetry JB, it’s amazing how many words can be worked around “red”. Thankyou 🙂

  7. tigersninja says:

    Obrigada JB! Bom trabalho! Eu amo isso, e uma gracinha! 🙂

    • JB says:

      tigersninja, muito obrigado! O seu comentário em português representa muito para mim, obrigado.

      • tigersninja says:

        Espero que eu fazia sentido! Tem sido um longo tempo desde que eu falava português e eu continuo a aprender esta língua bonita. Anos atrás, eu visitei Campinas e adorei lá. Espero visitar novamente algum dia. Estou ansioso para mais de sua escrita!

        • JB says:

          Tigersninja, fez sentido sim. Obrigado novamente por seu comentário. E se algum dia voltar para visitar o Brasil, visite o nordeste brasileiro João Pessoa na Paraíba é uma cidade incrível ou visite a cidade de Bonito em Goiás que você não irá se arrepender.

      Tigersninja, how the heck do you know Portuguese?!

      • tigersninja says:

        LOL. I have many friends from Brasil and I spent some time there several years ago. I started tutoring ESL to Brasilians while I was managing restaurants and decided to learn Portuguese to make it easier for me to teach and communicate with them and those I worked with in the restaurant business. It’s such a beautiful language but I haven’t spoken it in a long time so it was fun to try it again. 🙂

  8. JB says:

    Thank you all. I did not imagine that I would get so nice feedback with Red, you guys are cool! 😀

    • Alyx says:

      Thank YOU for your contribution, JB. But I have to agree — my readers are the nicest and funniest and just the best around….I love them all. 🙂

  9. Peach says:

    The poetry reviewer in me wants to point out a lot of things (no worries, a lot of them are good).
    But I will keep it at a short, great job, your poem was absolutely adorable 🙂
