Shaman - Horse

Poem - Blue and Red

I was inspired to write “Blue and Red” when I saw a meme that stated pill choice, blue or red, meant that friends were equally loved and a color was preferred.

Blue and Red

The pills were blue and red
the latter more pink than crimson’s hue
one or the other would be the choice
between liaison of gender’s breadth
I am left with one or the other to take
the blue ends the story with many made happy
the red enters wonderland fewer travail
neither suit me when they’re held in hand.

One of the capsules leans to the same
with shades of flowers fresh from spring
biology’s congress equal to match
one to the other, alike in the shape
the other lozenge looks cross the bridge
A fitting B with the two meet
fitting the knob to receptacle’s met cleft
the larger group prefers this contest.

I pondered the choice of tablet to take
each with a color stating my taste
gender to hold, comfort to find
consider the twist when both were taken
lavender is the result of this mix
the red and the blue blend in the heart
the same and the different are as nice
attraction to both is my remedy’s aim.
