The colours that symbolize human emotions
|She slipped clumsily in a café
Looked all around her
from the corner of the eye
bit her lip,
felt all eyes upon her
and flushed CRIMSON, disconcertedly.
He was sacked, literally fired
got down in the dumps,
was down and out
and was left feeling BLUE, quite gloomily.
He gave her a blossomed rose
blood rushed to her cheeks
she blushed deep RED, so joyously.
She watched her rival from afar
Summed up all the envy in reflex
and instantly turned GREEN, jealously.
It looked hale and hearty
ooh those cherubic chubby cheeks
baby looked in the PINK
as it babbled away innocently.
She heard of a beloved one's demise
that was a shock indeed
She went WHITE as a sheet
and then she wept woefully.
She saw a teeny-weeny spider on her skirts
Talk of arachnids and phobias, yikes!
And she turned a pale YELLOW in fright
He found his sweet-heart
in another man's arms
doubted his own charms
and his face went PURPLE with rage
He faced a life-long enemy
hate brimmed up in him
as his bitterness found a vent
He shot him a BLACK glare
Well, well it might seem the worst of all the human hues
are the melancholy, depressing blues
But I think green when it represents jealousy
and the black of hate
top the list in deserving poohs.
Mind you, these human pigmentations of emotion
are a matter of reflex
for you can't choose
which of the human hues
you would like to wear
on party day
and which you had rather not use!
