The folks over at Theme Thursday are taking a new approach starting this week. They've decided to begin each month with a colour as their theme. This month's colour is RED. So, here's my ode to the scarlet colour.
Now I suppose this is appropriate as February contains Valentine's Day
And red would seem to be associated with the way we say
I love you.
But there are many, many other uses of the colour red
Such as "in the red", "better dead than red", or simply "red head"
You ginger, you.
The Detroit Red Wings, the Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox
Are all sports collectives that use red to promote and hawk
And lest we forget, you can surely bet red's what we get
When we blow our top, lose our cool, or get set
To let off steam.
And thus endeth today's lesson, short though interesting because
Red can be a fascinating subject. On the other hand maybe it was
For the birds.
