Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Mellow Yellow Monday

It's always a good 
Time to have a good time; let's
Play cars on the hearth

Of all the colors under the sun
Yellow is the mellowest one.
Its hues are varied, if truth be told—
Cream and amber, and even gold.
Saffron’s considered a yellow hue,
So are lemon and bisque—buff too!
One mustn’t forget the lion’s mane—
Tawny and blond like Penny Lane.
And when full moons glow golden at night
They cast on earth a xanthic light.
Of all the colors under the sun,
Yellow, my friend, is the most fun!

Yellow Leaf

Ode to Yellow

Vibrant color of the sun
Brighter still than beige or dun,
Varied, brilliant, bright and bold
Lends its radiance to gold.

Flower's most majestic hue
Often found in fruits, it's true,
And autumn leaves seen down the lane
Or arcs that follow spring-time rain.

Then sunset fades to to darkest night
But morning casts a xanthic light
On bikini girls who swim and run:
Perhaps that's why blonds have more fun.
