Day 15 : Paint the town red

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I have a yen, to paint the walls
so effusive is my mood
and for my palette, sweated drops
from football tops

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 for a room, of doom and gloom
I’ll plump for morose maroon
stencil the borders, with Portuguese Men’o’war
their tentacles, like ventricles, across a ravaged heart

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 for a room, of excitement and wonder
I’ll choose a blazing red
stencil the borders, with dragons, breathing fire
the flames, igniting a passion to inspire

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 for a box room, packed full of promise
I’ll brush on a busy blue
stencil the borders, with a Rising Sun
and bow dutifully, before welcoming everyone

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 for a kitchen, with a menu of some tasty pastings
I’ll pick out an appetizing avocado green, with a mix of guacamole
break across the border, engulfed with waves of enthusiasm
yet turn hot and spicy, when things get dicey

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 but for my pièce-de-résistance
I’ll select a dazzling yellow, to brighten up everybody’s day
stencil the borders, with a samba band, playing in the sand
to a pulsating beat, and a rhythm to make your heart sway
