SHADES OF BLUE

By Suri Ben Noah

Shades of blue; forever blue
Life is nothing but shades of blue.
Shade and shadow playing on
As we remain blissfully
Unaware of the big con.

Playing our petty games,
Ruling our own world,
Thinking we know,
More than most others know,
Mastering subjects and professions,
Unworthy of our time,
Wasting our bodies,
With food and wine.

Shades of blue; forever blue
Life is nothing but shades of blue.
Shade and shadow playing on
As we remain blissfully
Unaware; of the big con.

Hoping to conquer
All horizons viewed,
Ol! Life is
Nothing but screwed.
When we sincerely assume
We are about to conquer
We only do so presume
For ultimately it is death that to dust us conquer.

Shades of blue; forever blue
Life is nothing but shades of blue.
Shade and shadow playing on
As we remain blissfully
Unaware; of the big con.

Before we even realize it,
Our life is soon over.
This veritable life indeed,
Which doth seemed to flower.
Is death a leveler?
Or, just a plain destroyer?
The cessation of breath,
It's not just a meaningless death.

Shades of blue; forever blue
Life is nothing but shades of blue.
Shade and shadow playing on
As we remain blissfully
Unaware; of the big con.
