d’Verse: Poets Pub ~ Color: the poem

If you add white to red you get pink.
If you get holes in your boat then you’ll sink.
If you add yellow to blue you get green.
If you wear a crown you’ll look like a queen.
If you add yellow to red you get orange.
I’m sorry,
Never mind.

    Oops did you paint yourself into a poetic corner? A fun read.

      Almost shameful in its simplicity on a topic as rich as “colors”. Oh well…never mind. 😉

    😆 Orange is a funny little name for a color. It’s the only color name with 33 coded gematria as well. Blame the Freemasons!

      Oh my! You are a genius and you ruined my poem by solving my dilemma. You’re forgiven. 🤣
