Better for it.

I never met a man of blue
But almost every other hue
Is seen upon at least a few
And we are better for it

Maybe not so many green
Amongst the folk that I have seen
In darkness there just might have been
And we’d be better for it

Underneath we all are red
Unless of course already dead!
When you’d be other shades instead
And not be better for it!

Doesn’t matter much to me
What race or creed or size you be
As long as you are making tea!
I’d feel much better for it!

So from a bloke who’s dirty pink
Please do not bother with the ink
Just read the words and start to THINK
And you’ll be better for it!
