Oh green crayon why do you stand there looking at me. I can tell by your unmoving expression that you think this is funny that I am now missing my favorite television program. I can hear the sound behind you but all I see is your green outer paper. Are you Crayola, Roseart, or some other brand? I will never know my attention is on you unyielding green crayon, but you are unforgiving and will not come off my TV. screen. Why? I’ll ask again, do you think it’s clever to sit there and block my channel out. You may have won the battle but you have not won the war unholy green crayon. So today I walk away, go outside and will never return to face you again. That is until tomorrow.
Ode to the green crayon frozen on my TV
