There Is But One True Color of A Rose

There Is But One True Color of A Rose As everyone knows, There is but one true color of a Rose, It is the color which calls to action, The one which causes ads to have “traction,” The only hue that excites, Yet paradoxically, invites, The one that is all over at your birth, The color of the most vital fluid on this Earth, It is the color of gory Death, Yet it signals blood that has gained oxygen from your breath, It is the only “true” color of a Ferrari, And that on the lips of every potential Mata Hari, A color that cannot, here, be said, The color, without which, you would be Dead! Red/ for nette onclaud's Color My World/ by Rick Rucker
