"Hello I'm Johnny Cash" his warm hearted greeting;
they knew it was the man in black they were meeting.
And this color black is also well favored
by those whose lifestyle is "goth" flavored.
Ladies all over have closets brimming
with black clothes which are supposedly slimming!
There's the black heart of the liar and cheater
which makes the other lovers seem sweeter.
The black jellybean stands out from the rest
there in it's Easter basket nest.
In black of night I wrote this all down;
might be the most versatile color around!
