Pink Tipped



Not the nails of a lady who's heavily into chores!
What on earth could she possibly do with such very dainty paws?
She couldn't do any gardening; she couldn't wash the clothes.
All she could  do in comfort is sit around and pose!
She couldn't play touch-football or make castles in the sand,
And peeling the potatoes would be positively banned!
I agree they're rather pretty, with their delicate pink bows,
But 'Handsome is as handsome does' as everybody knows.

The splash of blood in Gerald's cartoon
Is as red as plum jam in a spoon.
It shows up scarlet, brilliant, bright,
Because the victim's clothes are white!
Think of the uniforms of old!
Ruby red and blazing bold.
Think a while and you'll understand
Why that colour was in demand!
When a man was hit and blood had spurted
His fellow soldiers were disconcerted!
As it dribbled, soaked and oozed
Other men became confused.
'We never thought of blood!' they brayed,
'But this sight's made us quite afraid!
We think we might lay down our arms!
That red has raised some loud alarms!
All the red that I can see
Makes me think it could be me!'
But, on a coat already red,
No-one could see old Tom had bled!
'Let's face the enemy with aplomb!
Nothing's the matter with our friend, Tom!'
