“Roses are red. Bacon is red. Poems are hard. Bacon”

A bacon poem has been printed on ecards and T-shirts:

“Roses are red.
Bacon is red.
Poems are hard.
Bacon.”


The short poem went viral on Twitter on March 27, 2012.

“Roses are red. Wine is also red. Poems are hard. Wine” is a “roses are red” poem about wine. “Roses are red. Pizza sauce is, too. I ordered a large, and none of it is for you” is a “roses are red” poem about pizza.

“Roses are red, bacon is red, poems are hard…bacon.” That is, of course, according to the quite pathetic attempt at rhyming couplets you may have spotted on your social media feeds as of late.
