Yellow Overall Exceptionally Positive, With A Few Exceptions


Yellow
It is said to be the sunny color,
but the sun is really so much more
When I think yellow
Coward comes to mind, sometimes even Congress
lovely home all painted warm with white shutters
a brides maid dress made to make the bride look best
the perfect cheap mustard
lemon fresh in the liquid aide or sitting on the counter
light bulb burning brightly
a jaundiced baby
orange juice which is funny cause usually its not orange at all
lines between the opposite sides if the road
tassel from graduation
sponges made for cleaning up all the spills
when your sick there are always little yellow pills

So many things are just so bright
without explanation I see that they
might need to be made apparent with
the brightest color of the rainbow
so that there importance is not missed
they are viewed without exception
Overall a positive color
with only a few exceptions
Jaundice easily cured,
I don’t know what to do about Congress

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
