The Palette Parable

The Palette Parable

There once was a color green

That was a bit

Of an envious thing

And it got it in it’s head

Contrary to natural hue

And prismal evidence said

….That it wanted to be blue.

It put on a blue coat

And acted as such

But it’s true identity was revealed

By natural law and touch.

Still it persisted

And despite initial response

It protested and insisted

That everyone call it blue.

It had blue pride parades,

It adorned azure attire,

And played cobalt charades,

Joined the Navy and the Ultra Marines

Trying desperately not to let

Its shade of jade show.

Little by little and one by one,

The other colors quit wondering why

It wanted to be the color of sky.

And as they accepted the lie

Sure enough, they began to think it so.

In fact, some became so adamant,

That anyone who questioned

Its alternative cue,

Was called hateful and intolerant.

More and more colors

Began to deny assigned intent and tone,

Till palettes and minds were cloudy

And the rainbow confused.

Making the Master Artist sad

That His colors rebelled

Against the purpose of what

They were created to do

And even though they yelled

And passed laws to enforce the lie,

……it still does not make it Right or True!

Forced NUBtials


Bella Chuggerella
finally has her fella
and she just knows
that he will be
the best hubby hound
any pooch did ever see:
opening doggy doors
and covering mud puddles;
fending off squirrel and squeaky toys,
cleaning her ears and giving cuddles;
faithfully wagging by her side
– she takes comfort in knowing
that she’ll never pant alone;
but the sad fact remains
Boomer Nubbins is a snubby groom
that likely won’t ever
…..give this poor bride a bone!!!
