Into the Blue

Skies meet the oceanic
deep sea diving down,
feeling your cold touch
depression caused by
fingertip pressure spots.
Veins run royally collect
in flowering forget me nots,
cool creased denim worn
out of collar coded clich├ęs.
Ribbons and rosettes fail us
declare a winner right or left
conservative, republic, rebuke
liberal spreading of liberties.
School uniforms conform
to navy coloured rules,
and the virgin mother mary
with her body covered up.
Birds are singing fairytales
in powder and pastel shades
nursery rhymes and painted
stereotypes on young minds.
