.5. A Colourful Day Poem by David Threadgold

.5. A Colourful Day

Rating: 5.0

My pinstripe suit sits waiting
Freshly cleaned and neatly pressed
For a most important meeting
Where I need to look my best

I rise before the clock can ring
To wake me from my sleep
My brain was working through the night
And rest does not come cheap

A wash & shave a brush of teeth
Cool waters cleared my head
I fumbled for my best shampoo
But got blue bleach instead

As normal I used plenty
It didn’t lather well
I put another handful on
And then I got the smell

My hair was turning orange
A face all blue but duller
I didn’t make my meeting
Being a little bit off colour

.At least you would be sanitized and noted in the crowd you would not need to raise your voice, as your hair was rather loud You could say it is the fashion! and that you'll set the trend a spiked hair do would not go amiss, just a thought! my friend great Poem David made me laugh, regards Bob
