Sadness

The girl wants to be sad white girl
Because she is brown- and – happy
With no irony’s undertones to life.
Both her legs are safe from pulling.
Brown legs are boringly not pulled.

Somebody looks to be sad in face
Because his face is built that way.
What irony for puppy brown soul!
Poetry has to bear sadness inside,
It cannot by design be white lark.

Sadness has no color,only texture,
A little mockery,a sarcasm at work.
Melancholy is its beauteous sister,
As Duke of Orsino gladly testifies.
All poetry’s face is made that way.
