Soaking up the blues and greens.
I was told that
Blue and green should never be seen
except upon an Irish Queen.
But now it seems my informant was wrong,
it was red and green for that rule.
Without another colour in between,
or except in the washing machine,
is what I should have been abiding by
for blue and green.
Oh and never wear brown in town.
Or brown and blue will never do.
We love amusing ourselves with rules that rhyme.
I notice I am wearing green and blue striped socks
If you see the sky is blue,
Time to break a rule or two.
