The following poem was posted on Facebook by Kat Murti on February 14, 2019:

“Roses are red. 🌹
Violets are blue.🌸
I own me. ✌🏼
You own you. 💛
Happy Valentine’s Day! 💋”


An extended libertarian version (shown on an image) was posted on Twitter by Martin Hartmann on November 5, 2020:

“ROSES ARE RED.
VIOLETS ARE BLUE.
I OWN ME.
YOU OWN YOU.
OH...AND THE GOVERNMENT IS A BIG FAT
ILLEGITIMATE AND OUTDATED CONTROL
STRUCTURE BUILT ON THEFT, COERCION AND
VIOLENCE AND WILL NEVER BE FIXED BY
VOTING IN THE RIGHT PEOPLE. NOT EVER.”

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet;
And so are you
