Nuh-Uh, Zebra –A Limericked Flash-55 on One Who Colors to Connive
You know, I venture not to gripe,Except your ever-changing stripe –Prevaricating without end,As daily, every truth you bend –Transforms reality to hype.
A different colored horse are you.Your utterances ne’er are true.For black is white, and white is black;Beginning, you’ve no turning back.Deceit has tainted our lives blue.

Well done Linda, this had thought provoking layers.
But if I was white with black or black with white, then you'd still not see me in the night and your wishes would not take flight.
very cool, 55.
Linda, I see you found your way to Galen's blog lol. I swear the internet is really easy to cross paths of people you know even if it is via Helium. Galen's a cool writer even though he'll deny his ability to find the words.Missy
