Twitter's take on 'Roses are red' poem is more salty than sweet
"Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you."
Or maybe not.
For Valentine's Day, wannabe poets are taking to Twitter with their own four-line quatrains. Some are sweet and some are definitely salty.
Let's start with the sweet:
