ROY G BIV
in his darkened room
refracting prism colours.
hot sunset anger
passion for blood-red planet.
half-time citrus fruit
thirst quenching energy juice.
Yellow, coward -
ice bright sunlit mustard
dazzling rape field horizon.
rest in lime bright fields of grass.
Blue, cold jazz
a deep depression
across sea and sky so sad.
wise Portuguese plum
cool dusk-dyed star-spangled sky.
shy shady Spring flower
high terahertz humility.
"Richard of York gave battle in vain".
