Black, White, Magenta and Pink Are Not There

Men always find a sickening way to provoke division

To create chaos or havoc and to increase friction

The absence of light or the sun is the color black

The full presence of the sun or light is called white

Black, white, magenta and pink are regrettably blocked

They don’t count. Human eyes are woefully limited to light

Let’s not be too smart, let’s not talk about nanometers

Countless wavelengths and the spectral or physical colors

That the human eyes can process in a measured or

Limited way. Black is about not getting enough light or aura

And white about getting too much light and being blinded

By the sunrays which can destroy our sight. This sounds convoluted

Because men continue to be baffled by colors which have

Nothing to do with the state of mind or behavior. Let’s not dive

Into something which is deleterious to humanity or the human race

Let’s learn about each other, because we are under the same space

Every color needs each other in order to form a beautiful rainbow

Let’s unite all the spectral or imaginary colors now, not tomorrow

In our mind, we can unselfishly and happily add to the rainbow: black

White, magenta, and pink and do color combination on a nice plaque.
