A New Language - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns

I am starting a new language.
It just came to me today.
No it isn’t Haiku,
We’ll call it Lo-Cal if we may!

The words will be just known colors.
Each one stands for a simple phrase.
It will take some interpretation,
So use the key before you play.

“Blue” is “Blue Hawaii” and “Pink” is “I do think.”
“Red” is for the phrase let’s say,
“Man your feet sure stink! ”

“Green” is for the “Fallen Leaves, ”
“Turquoise” stands for “Colorful Trees”!
“Sky Blue” will be for “Blue Skies.”
“Royal Purple” will mean “Nice Try! ”

“Yellow” can stand for “Sunny Day.”
“Orange” for “the Ocean Blue.”
'Raw Umber' tells you to “Look Away, ”
And “Sherbet“ will say “Look Up You! ”

Okay! Now lets give it a little try.
I will walk to the conductor’s stand,
Brown, brown, brown, brown,
Brown, brown, brown, brown!
I stubbed my toe while standing,
And here on this site brown’s not fit,
The only clue I can give you,
Is it rhymes with the phrase “I quit! ”

May everyone have a Yellow!
