So Many Human Hues! - Poem by s.zaynab kamoonpuri
She slipped clumsily in a café
looked all around her
from the corner of her eye
felt all eyes upon her
bit her lip
and flushed crimson disconcertedly.
He was sacked, literally fired
got down in the dumps
was down and out
and was left feeling blue so gloomily.
He gave her a blossomed rose
blood rushed to her cheeks
She blushed a deep red so joyously.
She watched her rival from afar
that summed up her envy in reflex
and she turned green jealously.
It looked hale and hearty
Ooh the cherubic chubby cheeks
Baby looked in the pink
as it babbled away innocently.
She heard of a loved one's demise.
That was a shock indeed
She went white as a sheet
as she then wept so woefully.
She saw a teeny-weeny spider on her skirts
Talk of arachnids and phobias, yikes!
She turned a pale yellow in fright
as she screamed fearfully.
He found his sweetheart in another man's arms
Doubted his own charms
and his face went purple with rage
He faced his lifelong enemy
hate brimmed up in him
as his bitterness found a vent
He shot him a black glare
well well, it might seem that the worst of all the human hues
are the melancholic depressing blues
But I think being green for jealousy
and the black of hate
top the list in deserving poohs.
Mind you these human
pigmentation of emotion
are a matter of reflex
for you can't choose
which of the human hues
you'd like to wear, on party day
and which you'd rather not use.
