Violet

VIOLET

If only blue and red came together,			
to build a violet colour instead,
then our lives will certainly be better.

The sides of politics will not matter,
no more deceit and gross lies will be spread,
if only blue and red came together.

If sports rivals did not turn game wreckers,
and accepted defeats with a calm head
then our lives will certainly be better.

Red and blue coats in battle forever,
throughout all of history this is read,
if only blue and red came together.

If both husband and wife kept their measure,
and family feuds where fixed before bed,
then our lives will certainly be better

If we spelt each word letter by letter,
and foresaw misunderstanding ahead,
if only blue and red came together,
then our lives will certainly be better.

    We paint ourselves with different colours. A moving villanelle that I am glad to have red and blue too.

    Good poetic way to describe the color at the upper end of the visible spectrum.

    I hear your Paul. However, politicians in Australia are not any different. Hooliganism is rife throughout the work. And which country does not have the separation and divorce scourge? Thanks for visiting.
