The Colors of Cane

By Michael Zahn

iPads are red,
TVs are blue,
get off that couch
we’ve got swimming to do!

Swimsuits are red,
swimsuits are blue,
physique is a factor,
and attitude, too —
a Speedo inspires
(and so does J.Crew)

Swim caps are orange,
swim caps are green.
Neon’s advantage:
You can be seen.
Neoprene’s great
if Cane’s temp is polar.
Ears turning blue?
Just yank it lower.

Tow floats are pink,
(yeah, some are yellow).
If shore’s afar,
and your core
turns to jello,
orange you glad
you brought your
buoy?
Yo!

Cane sky might blush red,
Cane clouds might blow blue,
no matter the weather
I love swimming
with you
