I ordered a car new,
Model was different, owned by few.
Its finish was bold,
Looking at it, you’ll get clean bowled!
Colour I chose was yellow,
Yellow is Coldplay, Yellow is Me!
Yellow is Sunshine, Yellow isn’t green…
I never chose Yellow because it was Yellow
Days went by as I imagined driving my pride,
To all friends I look good to, I thought of giving a ride.
Life was waiting, happiness was in future;
In its anticipation, present went by…
Finally the day came when I went to pick up the car,
It was in the showroom, tucked inside far
Covered in cloth, like a bad boy waiting to be unleashed.
Down came the ribbon and the cloth fell down with ease.
To my shock I stared and stared,
For the colour was green, not yellow
I didn’t order this, I said repeatedly in my mind
Empowered with thoughts, I went to argue with the vendor!
While I shouted and was furious; he maintained his calm,
I handed over the keys in my palm.
He had the audacity to say the model & colour was as per my specification,
Annoyed and hysterical, I checked my application.
‘It says yellow, see’ I shouted aloud checking the application,
He patiently took me to the car,
And asked a couple of salesmen to identify its colour
‘Yellow’ they said unanimously, without any quiver.
They all were trying to prove me wrong,
One thing I hated strong.
Beaten but not lost, I continued to argue,
For the payment was yet due
I checked again; the car was still green,
That put me in retrospection
I was still wearing those blue shades, I remembered
I removed them, and voila, the car was yellow!!! 🙂
The car represents people in our life
Green is how we see them
Yellow is how they actually are
So when are you dropping your glasses?
