On St. Patrick's Day

On Saint Patrick’s Day

Orange and red was the sky this morning,
orange and red on Saint Patrick’s Day.
Green-reddish-brown was the ground this morning,
Green-reddish-brown on this Saturday.

How is it, why is it;
the world lives in color.
Yet here we are dreary
and lacking in style.
Fighting and crying
for two different shadow
When clear in the morning
all colors are right.
