Pioneering Poetry-Racketeering Buccaneers

An advertisement in black and sickly orange,
stating “Be a pain” illustrating this maxim by
irritatingly flashing every five seconds and
hurting my eyes by its despondent colours

Certainly this thing is a pain that awakens an
animal in me, ready to pounce on the screen
and pounding it into bits; what a shame that
management decided on painful black

And an insulting orange to torment all innocent
readers and browsing strangers; all I hope is
that dwindling readership numbers will bring
insight and understanding to the colour-blind

Muddle-minded, eyes-on-the-financial horizon,
pioneering-new-ways-in-poetry-racketeering;
buccaneers in management!
