By Shel Silverstein
My skin is kind of sort of brownish
Pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green,
but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown,
But it's silver when it's wet.
And all the colors I am inside
Have not been invented yet.
A day late, but still for ashinae. Look, he spelled "colors" right! Hee! I'm curious, Canadian and British people who protest that here in the U.S. we get your books published with the spelling corrected to American standard: when you read our poets, has the spelling been Britishized (or Britishised as the case may be)? Is this poem called "Colours" in your editions?
This awesome, rocking Master and Commander meme gacked from anglepoiselamp among many others:
I had to do it again with the spanker as my favorite sail (so perkypaduan would be proud of me, heh). But then I was sailing with Mr. Lamb and looking for Jack Sparrow and helping Killick in the kitchen, which was just not nearly so satisfying. Plus my kangaroo died. I am so much happier keeping Diana occupied while Jack is swooning over his S, whether or not we commandeer the ship, though I am curious about exactly what happens to the coffee...
