.5. A Colourful Day

Poem By David Threadgold

My pinstripe suit sits waiting
Freshly cleaned and neatly pressed
For a most important meeting
Where I need to look my best

I rise before the clock can ring
To wake me from my sleep
My brain was working through the night
And rest does not come cheap

A wash & shave a brush of teeth
Cool waters cleared my head
I fumbled for my best shampoo
But got blue bleach instead

As normal I used plenty
It didn’t lather well
I put another handful on
And then I got the smell

My hair was turning orange
A face all blue but duller
I didn’t make my meeting
Being a little bit off colour
