Culture and Colour

Culture expects me to cultivate my mind

I don’t talk scandal, simply not the kind

I don’t talk nonsense, following my sense of taste

Culture taught me, my breath not to waste

Primary colours in different cultures led to secondary

Diversity shapes us human, it’s simply elementary

Culture and colour, take each other by the hand

Our ancestors of different colour, arrived by sea and land

Some people gain, some lose and some add colour to stories

Who you are, is the least of my trivial worries

Some colours are running together, some colours are fading away

The ones who fade, find rest in the shade, come together and say

"Culture expects me to know its theory of colour:

Colourful splendour, vibrant like the rainbow in flavour"

Culture and colour, the picture was painted with pain

Cultures’ theory of colours, on his character a visible stain

Does it really matter if you are black or white?!

I guess my grandmother was right

Saying:” Sometimes colour & culture

Ugly as sin, colourless vulture.”
