Plucking Rainbows

Plucking Rainbows

Are you blue as the sky in sunlight

or blue as the depths of the ocean floor,

Are you red like the sky at night

(shepherds delight)

or red like strips of blood on ice,

a baby seal clubbed to the head

so someone else can wear its colours,

Whose team would you support,

(loyal to the end),

and when we’re running colours

how do we make the ground white again?

Plucking rainbows

will not cover the black soot

staining our souls

when you peel back your layers

and freeze to death

before you burn in Hell

for stealing Mother Nature’s colours.
