I know it's one day early, but I have the time now to post it. This puzzle will mostly use the same rule as my last rulebreaker puzzle, as the rule was not cracked. The difference being that this time I have taken into account the fact that multiple answers can be obtained, so all of the answers will be given (your job to figure out what part(s) of my answers are relevant, it will not necessarily be the first word as in the last puzzle).

Part I: I am looking to have this phrase completed properly

_ are _, _ are _. _ _ is the _, I _ _ _.

Part II: This part will begin once the phrase is $poyled and will be like a normal puzzle where you try to guess the origin of the phrase.

Are the blanks in the phrase representing letters? Words? this

Are you looking to have this phrase completed properly? If roses are red, than the answer is yes
Are you looking to have that phrase completed properly? If roses are not red, than the answer is no
Are you looking to have the phrase completed properly? Red roses are quite lovely in the morning


Does the phrase begin with "Roses are red, violets are blue"? It does not start exactly this way, and after this I am not answering any questions about the phrase itself. I will answer non italicized questions with the rule, and guesses to the phrase can be answered in italics. If parts of the phrase are to be guessed, a "_" can be used for unknown words. I will tell how many words are correct of the 15 in the phrase.


Mice involved? kittehz? tortiesiblings? cheezburgur? cool whip? microwaves? nuking? fluffy? chocolate? Based on my response to Balin, I will not answer this question.

Are roses red? Roses are indeed red, but they also come in many other colors
Are violets blue? Have you ever seen a blue rose, I haven't. But if you cross it with a red one, would you get a violet?
Are roses rose? Roses can be rose, which is a shade of red.
Are violets violet? I thought they were blue? But I can for sure say that many roses are red.

Can we call the writer Lucinda? And the voice owner Gertrude?
Are Gertrude and Lucinda sisters? Friends? Classmates? Lesbian Lovers? Is one of them you? Your sibling Kaylee? If so, is the you/Kaylee one Gertrude? Lucinda? (Obviously if Gertrude and Lucinda are sisters and one is you, the other is Kaylee. Unless there's a secret sibling neither of you have ever told us about.)

Oh, more:
Did Lucinda write this as a Valentine? Other than their appearance in the poem, are roses relevant? Same question for windows? Would this puzzle work if the poem were "My Ferrari is red, windows are clear, your voice is the loudest I ever did hear". What if it was "Roses are red, Drunks drink Beer, your voice is the loudest I ever did hear". Or combine the two so it's "My Ferrari is red, drunks drink beer ..."

Was Gertrude (you) the recipient of the Valentine? Did she scream something prior to the writing of the Valentine? Something related to Valentine's Day? Like "HAPPPPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!"? In a highly embarassing manner? Breaking glass? Breaking wind?

*****SPOILER*****


In elementary school (can't recall what grade thought I think 3rd)it was required for everyone in a class to bring valentines for everyone else in that class. One of my classmates decided to give everyone a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and a hand written poem that she wrote herself. I believe they all started "Roses are red..." and followed that format. Either way, I was seeing some of the nice poems others got from her, but when I opened mine, to my dismay, mine said "Roses are Red, Windows are Clear. Your voice is the loudest, I ever did hear." Now, I admit that in elementary school, I talked too much, teachers even commented on it on my report cards. I've also been told that sometimes I do get louder than necessary. However, who wants to hear that in a valentine poem? Oh well, great solve!

As for my rule that I used. You guys have a few options. Either I do one more puzzle where the point is to break the rule, or I post the rule on this puzzle, or I never tell and those who care will never discover how my rule worked, MUAHAHAHA!!!.

I'll leave this for a few days, and the most popular response will be what I do.

Looks like I'll do another puzzle, even though I may only have one person attempting to solve it, lol. It won't be posted until at least Monday because I'll be busy or out of town until then. It will be the final one in the set however, and the goal will be to break the rule I've been using.
