Blue is the New Black


I think I would rather wear blue

(Or some metropolitan hue)

If the dead in their graves should talk

(But they'll say that it's generally true)


That blue is now the new black

(When someone's not coming back)

And it's fine, and no one should gawk

(Though wearing blue takes some knack)

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
