Green plus white equals blues


With the green
you can have love.
She needs the green,
it buys the white,
she says its her job.

Its just an act she says
every night and day,
seven days a week
or till she passes out.

Its sad,
but true,
the denial is real.
Green plus white
equals the blues.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
