A Homage to Beige (or Cream, Oatmeal, Acorn, and the like).

“Beige, did you say?

Oh, cream!

Yes, cream is a wonderful colour;

except that, day by day,

hour by hour, the colourful ‘cream’

gets duller and duller,

eventually turning sour…

like a lemon.

A colour pale

will not avail

when brightness is what we are asking;

be vibrant, be bright;

turn on the light,

any dimmer will bring us a tasking.

So, cream you say;

double with jam?

To add a dash of sparkle?

I hope that’s so;

or I’ll have to say:

no,

and leave you to your debacle.”

“Happy World Poetry Day!”
Four words, seven syllables.

But, what a lot we can do with words
And, you don’t really have to count the syllables
As long as you enjoy the write
What else matters?
Well, you could read some poetry as well
That would be good
It needs to be read like roses
And it can blow your mind
Like noses
So read and write
And take delight
In National Poetry Day!
