:D   That's a goodie, but shouldn't that last line be
"and I do too" to make it rhyme with "violets are blue"?
At least that's how it is in Swedish.

Rosor är röda,
violer är blå,
jag är schizofren,
jag likaså.

Although it *is* kinda funny when it *doesn't* rhyme.

Actually, this makes for a nice translation exercise. :)
