Roses Are Red

Some roses appear red to me,
Some violets appear purple to me,
My experience of sugar is that of a ‘sweet’ ‘sensation’,
But my experience of you is not of a ‘sweet’ ‘sensation’,
Rather it varies from moment to moment,
And it is probable that I sometimes experience you as being ‘cute’ or ‘nice’ etc.

As far as my knowledge extends, when I look at a rose, the rose absorbs all frequencies of visible light that shine upon it, except for those with the wavelength of around 610 nanometers, which it reflects back into my eye.

Cone photoreceptors in my retina react to this light, and an electrical signal is sent along my optic nerve to the visual cortex, where the perception of the colour ‘red’ is formed in the ventral stream.

Similarly, when I gaze upon the petals of a typical Viola Odorata, said petals reflect only the light with a wavelength of around 450–400 nanometers, which is eventually interpreted by my brain as a reddish-blue or ‘violet’ colour.

The organic compound C12H22O11, commonly known as table sugar, when placed in my mouth binds with the heterodimer and homodimer receptors, thus producing the effect of a ‘sweet’ sensation. The strength of this perceived ‘sweetness’ has been shown to vary according to whether it is administered in a liquid solution or in solid form.

You are similar to sucrose in that you are composed primarily of Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen molecules, although you are unlikely to stimulate the necessary receptors if placed in my mouth.


Whilst we can reasonably assert that some roses are red in their appearance, it doesn’t logically follow that all roses must therefore be red, and this is borne out in observation. The same system of logic can be used to also prove that not all violets are blue.

Is sugar sweet, or is sweetness merely a product of the interaction between human taste buds, human brains and various forms of glucose?

If I describe you as being sweet, what do I actually mean, and how can I use a different explanation to reference your likeness? Do I mean that on average you are ‘sweet’, or that your sweetness is sufficient enough to have a lasting effect? How is your sweetness quantified?

Roses were originally white, but the United States government secretly tested chemical weapons in a small agricultural village in during the 1920’s which permanently altered soil P.H levels, rapidly changing the white petals orange and eventually red.

Leaked military documents detail a top secret operation codenamed: ‘Blue Violets’, in which serotonin suppressants were administered under the guise of malaria vaccines in developing countries and the MMR jab in The United Kingdom. The aim was to keep the population from engaging in any activities that threaten the security of authoritarian governments by reducing the population’s capacity to complete all but the most menial day to day tasks.

The highly refined and rapidly absorbed sugars that are now found in everything from our daily bread, to the foods we feed our babies are part of a long term strategy aimed at cultivating a worldwide dependence on nutritionally deficient diets that only benefit the large multinational corporations who have huge investments in, and sums to gain from feeding the world’s population their unnatural concoctions.

We are what we eat, and are slowly becoming simple sugars like maltodextrin and glucose, all in the name of corporate greed.

Roses are sweet,

Violets are sour,

Sugar is curly,


Your experience of roses is such because you are in a wonderful state of allowing their redness into your consciousness!

The celestial hues of violets are simply a manifestation of your vivid connection to their innate blueness!

The universe is offering you all manner of sweet experiences in the form of sugar, all you have to do is allign your vibration by thinking sweet thoughts!

Remember, that connection with the eternal sweetness of your being is all that matters in this moment.

roses = “red”

violets = “blue”

sugar = “sweet”

print (“You are”, sugar)

Only when the last rose has been uprooted, and the final violet plucked, will we realise that we cannot eat sugar, nor human flesh.

– Ancient proverb

Roses are red, and I often wonder what the reason for the connection between romance and the colour red is. For example a heart is also red, which is almost universally used as a symbol for love, but at the same time blood is also red which actually brings to mind pain and suffering and death and not the sort of thing you’d want to associate with valentine’s day. Not that we should really associate anything with valentine’s day because it’s just another one of those made up holidays used to sell more expensive rubbish to impressionable consumers with disposable income. That’s the problem with today’s society, we have too much money and not enough sense. Yesterday I saw a young mother and her kid wouldn’t stop crying because his ipad had ran out of battery, but the girl was too busy reading some trashy magazine to take the time to actually educate her child like a responsible mother.

This thing is like this,

That thing is like that,

Another thing is how it is,

And you are the same.

Roses and violets,

They both have their own colour,

You are like sugar.

Roses are red,

a fiver for two,

sugar’s a quid,

would ya like a bag for that, sweetheart?

Poetry’s read,

violence is too,

the newspaper said,

they report it for you.
