Women and Colors

Women and Colors

By Elton Camp

Women are great—what would we do without ‘em
When it comes to knowing colors I sorta doubt ‘em

A common female characteristic that I hate
When easy stuff they try to overcomplicate

Rather strange it makes me feel
To hear of a color she calls “teal”

Is that really red, purple, blue or pink?
I absolutely don’t know what to think

“Sienna” is a color meaning naught to me
In my mind, it’s a Toyota van that I see 

“Fuchsia” and “bisque” are also the same
I’ve no clue what real colors they name

The only colors that I have ever seen
Are like red, purple, blue, white, green

    Or, you could be oversimplifying things. :) Nice write.

    Lovely rhythm you have flowing here, Elton. Aren't we kind of sexist here? Nice write, my friend. Licia :-)

    Oh, it's a little sexist, I suppose. But in my limited experience it is also true. : )
