Her Hair Was

by Duncan Jones

The first time he saw her
Her hair was blonde!
Blonde? BLONDE!
Her hair was blonde
He was already gone!

The next time he saw her
Her hair was red!
Red? RED!
Her hair was red
She was stuck in his head!

The next time he saw her
Her hair was brown!
Brown? BROWN!
Her hair was brown
And he jumped up and down!

The next time he saw her
Her hair was black!
Black? BLACK!
Her hair was black
He wished she would come back!

The next time he saw her
Her hair was striped!
Striped? STRIPED!
Her hair was striped
She was just his type!

The next time he saw her
Her hair was blue!
Blue? BLUE!
Her hair was blue
He said, “I love you!”

One day he saw her
Her hair was old!
Old? OLD!
Her hair was old
(And his was gone)
But he was already sold
When her hair was blonde!
