Orange Car

Is it really strange

That I bought an orange car?

I like the colour orange,

It’s my favourite by far.

It means when I search

For that place where I’ve parked

I just scan for orange;

My car is clearly marked.

Unfortunately not everyone

Appreciates the hue.

Some get frustrated,

And this is what they do:

They cover it with colours

That are more to their taste,

Often it is white

That they use to deface.

In splodges and splashes

On bonnet and boot,

Flapping about

And having a hoot.

I can’t bag a bird

With my wheels as they are,

Birds are my bane;

I’ll get another car.
