Oh, poetry,
Why must you sadden me so?

It can be seen clearly
That while you might be a friend
And while many hold you dearly
You must meet your end
Because I cannot write you—
This is true.

So to kill what others think is cool
I will write about my school:

A school color of mine is black
Dark like the silent night.
A companion this color does lack
For without it there would be no light.

The other color is orange
Like jumpsuits from the county jail
Nothing rhymes with orange.

The author's comments:
This is a humorous glance at the colorful nature of poetry. Also, I will make it my eternal life's quest to comb the world in order to find a word that rhymes with orange.
