Red

What can be said about flamboyant Red?
The brightest of the colors
The one that’s far ahead

There’s just no stopping Red
if the notion should get in his head

Red leads the way
Red fords the stream
‘cause Red has a vision
‘cause Red has a dream

All the other colors
just follow Red’s lead
‘cause Red know the path
to what they all need

Red

  3. You mean that REAL red not that magenta that is the builder of all colors red. Magenta and yellow make great bed fellows and a fire engine red.

    Or do you mean RED - Retired. Extremely. Dangerous.

  4. Red ROCKS. But Since I always get into trouble when I wear it, I am content with admiring it on others.xo

You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
