The Colour Of Cars - Poem by Paul Gerard Reed

Cars parked in metallic rows
Like words stacked up in prose
But only blacks and reds and greys
Not many colours to choose from nowadays
No greens or blues or yellows
Or stark, garish or outlandish fellows

Who would have thought say ten years back
That a popular colour would be black
That I could write into this verse
That most cars would resemble a hearse

I wonder what the trend will be ten years hence
Maybe cars painted with Cuprinol just like a fence
Or maybe there will be some other types
Painted in polka dots, stars or toothpastey stripes

Whatever the trend it should hold true
That people will still pick their favourite hue
And adorn their cars be they Honda or Ford
With stickers that say ' Beware - Baby Aboard'
