What Colour to be
By David Smith Saturday April 13, 2002
What colour do you think it is going to be?
As she rubbed her swollen tummy with enthusiasm and glee
Will it be of the orient with skin so yellow?
Or any African tribe where black is mellow
What colour will it be as she pondered the past
Of the international ships as they lowered their mast
So is the story of the nations around
Sailors love affection when they put foot on the ground
That is what is common for the M&M’s candy
Any race and all colours can be very friendly
“So what colour will it be?” As she asked at the mall
Of the new M&M colour to the patrons in the hall
