When the mundane Monday raises its grey and dull head Why not sprinkle some fun and colour up in the air instead Maybe put some deep red on an old house Otherwise sticking out like a sire louse
Even paint the barn door In the colour most of us adore And when completed all them upgraded and some leftover paint remains Head on, to the garden and slap on a coat of smarting Onto, the tiny windmill, always giving the chill, even warning When the wind blows or then if it sometimes storms So, now, definitely going strong Simply because, red, has the perk on This mundane Monday, not any more glum But really starting to be fun!
When the summer arrives Rest assured, there will be some vibes And not the good kind you’ll see As all the streets as torn in to pieces
There are pipes or cables to be laid The tram routes to be straightened Something else, which I just now cannot think of But surely, there is no corner, not ripped off
The busy city centre streets in summer There is only one word to describe it: Bummer! But somehow we, the dwellers, still manage To run, walk and shop, around in the messy facades, as we have lots of courage
A tall, very old building in the middle, of the street corner It was built there, just a little before, the starting of the very old wars It has seen it’s share of things, witnessed many changes But never, not even once, has it given up, it’s really greatly maintained facade Pristine, clean, cool, clear, nothing to hide, nothing to fear It may look rather majestic, but the essence, is pretty simplistic Take a look, take an picture, it does not mind As long as you leave, in silence and peace and leave, nothing of yourself behind
Fading, into the bluest of skies Is, the towering building, ever so high It’s cool exterior is quite the facade And whom ever designed it, was quite adverse with the arts So many floors, so many windows As to whom lives there, no one really knows You can go in and find out By knocking on each door or even shout “Who are you people living in this cool house?” And maybe, someone will respond or maybe not But if you really like the looks of the building Then maybe, you can try to move in
The importance to keep up the good facade Every season, changing the colour of the house But keeping up with the camouflage Is proving to be quite an art Yellow is a great choice for summer But the white or light grey is more of a bummer When preparing for the upon coming winter time And then there is the dark period Which may lead the house to rot But be prepared to paint it quickly Before the rain and wind start sticking To the walls and doors, even through the floors A darkish hue, is the most likely clue To protect the facade from the elements Until its time to jump into the greater events
