Black and White

Posted by

When all went black and white

It seemed everything was clear

Please, pass the salt and pepper

Let’s pretend everything’s alright

Crisp black lines crisscross the sheet

With instructions to tell the truth

We try to force another on our youth

Hiding in the shadows of our deceit

Stealing colors we cannot remember

Trying to explain a rainbow to a child

Or how a world could once be wild

When all that has been taught is fear

Before the flash of a mushroom cloud

Our colors drained into the stars, we bowed.
