My nails are blue,
by Michelle Krueger
'cuz finals week sucks.
Blue is confident,
It reminds me that I'm not dumb.
Her nails are green,
'cuz her finger is broken.
Green is distracting.
It takes away the pain.
His nails are black,
'cuz it matches everything he wears.
Black is forgetful,
It makes you forget how you feel.
The musicians nails are red.
'cuz it says 'I'm the best.'
Red is talented.
It plays the piano with ease.
The doctor's nails are plain,
'cuz there's no time for color.
Plain is invisible,
It is something to not fall in love with.
The mother's nails are tan,
'cuz it's something not unusual.
Tan is boring,
It doesn't draw wanted attention.
Nail polish is fun,
It says so much more than you think.
So next time you notice the colors,
Make sure you notice the story.
