If Evil Was A Colour


If evil was a colour
what colour would it be?
Would it be the colour
of a red sea.

Or would it be yellow,
of the sun and stars?
Because evil somtimes seems,
like an alien from mars.

Would it be a dark colour,
Something like black or grey?
Sometimes the darkness in peoples hearts,
is somthing like a ray.

Could it be a blue,
Deep and dark it is?
Because evil is just sadness,
Freed in anger like a fizz.

Evil has no colour,
Not black, blue nor red.
The only thing that evil is,
Is something full of dread.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
