Why in the world
is everything blue?
Why can't it just be
Purple and orange, too?

The sea is blue,
And so is the sky.
They are most of the world,
With a little green, why oh why?

Purple is a nice color,
But it is only on flowers.
Orange is better,
Think, orange rain showers!

What a neat world,
It would really be.
If there were less blue,
For us all to see.

One day, I was sick of all the blue, though where I live, it is usually white. So, I decided to write a goofy poem about my thoughts.
