Stay Away from the Blues by William Metts 7/28/2013

Start with yellow. Add a little blue.
Now you’re green with envy, that's not good for you.
Take some red. Add a little blue.
Now you’re purple with rage might could even hurt you.

Rainbows are wonderful things
Foretell of brighter days to be.
But who knows what the future may bring.
I hope you’re listening to me.

Take some black. Add a little blue.
That’s what you feel like when it gets hold of you.
Let this be a cautionary tale. Be careful what you do.
Use all the colors of the rainbow darling,
but stay away from the blues.
