The best colour
‘I am Blue!’ said Blue to Red.
‘I am not you but Blue instead!’
And I am the colour that fills the sky
I’m better than you, can you not see why?
‘But I am Red’ said Red to Blue,
‘As far as I’m concerned I’m better than you!
I am the colour of life, for the good,
For without red there wouldn’t be blood!’
‘But I am the oceans, the depths of the sea,
You cannot compare or get close to me!!’
‘But Red is to stop’ said red as a warning,
‘These are points only I am scoring!’
‘But I can make green’ Blue replied
‘Grass covers the Earth, you cannot deny!’
‘Well I can make orange, to quench your thirst’
Surely meaning that I must come first!’
‘Oh but I can make orange and also make green,
and without the sun you cannot be seen!
On top of that I’m a decent fellow,
There can be no dispute, the best colour’s yellow’.
