Poems that missed the recent issue of Verse Afire


God and Green Beans

Thomas Edison is said to have asked
his teacher "Why is grass green?"
She replied: "Because green is
God''s favorite colour."

Kentucky race horses
hunger for the bluegrass.
A blue sky would have provided
more dynamic sunsets for green valleys.

Brussels sprouts and green beans
are not popular vegetables.
If their colour was purple
would they be more appealing?

Dr. John La Gaipa
