Beware of Colours
It was about these flowers, you see,
blue a favourite colour for many they don`t
realise this colour can bring on melancholy
The flowers have long stems were in a vase
day- fresh with dewdrops sprinkled on
their leaf, how beautiful isn’t a goat would not hesitate.
Tomorrow the flowers will still be blue after
seven people committed suicide and a blind
the man could feel their suffering paleness.
Tired of funerals she paints sprayed the bloom
deep red and a war broke out in Sudan.
On the third day the flowers, now ashen grey
in the vase were dumped in a heap at
the bottom of the garden, hunger erupted
in Africa and Yemen skeletal children make
a good copy in black& white.
