Confession Of A Color Addict - Poem by Charlotte Ballard

They're coming!
Run for cover.
Crusading colors are on the rampage.
Here comes pitiful parading purple
DUCK!
Two big blobs
Are stuck on my knees
Rip-roaring Red is running wild
WATCH OUT!
Whew, I'm glad
That one missed me.
SPLAT!
A smidgen of guilty-green
Is gnawing at my ankle
Birdy Blue has flown
Through my first line defenses
And built a nest in my Belly button
Boring Black has kidnaped
My napping brain
I never knew when Oily Orange hit me.
If you ever go to the state hospital
And see someone covered with colors,
Wave,
For it's me.
