I can’t resist a limerick prompt, and Vincent threw out a handful for the holiday.
Red, heart, candy, and rose; the challenge was to use one or more of those. Hee!
With apologies to Ogden Nash, I give you:
A scientist made out a chart
Of the ways to a new lover’s heart.
“If candy is dandy
But liquor is quicker
Those and roses should be a good start.”
Arms loaded and cheeks rather red,
He set out to charm his dear Fred.
He offered the presents,
Fred noticed and dragged him to bed!
