Brown Beauty

I have lived through a time of change.
But, even 'then' it seemed quite strange
That Whites, in South Africa, like me,
Looking down on Black society,
Should make it part of their life-style plan
To get a dark and glowing tan!
Brown skin is beautiful, and the answer
To getting sun-spots and skin cancer!
Not only that, but that brown glow
Doesn't let the age-spots show!
'White' skin doesn't pass the test!
I now affirm that
Brown is Best!

(An Acrostic)

Every donkey that I've met
Ends up proving to be a pet!
Yes! Those lovely gentle eyes
Open wide and what a size!
Robin, (I mean the Christopher one,)
Enjoyed his Eeyore. Oh what fun!

I <3 Eeyore. Isn't it strange how tan is in, tan is out, tan means good, tan means bad? Ha...
Nice TT.
