Right from the start,

I sensed there was art

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


I’ve so often said

the cherries stay red

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


And to my delight,

all nuts stay white

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


There in my sack,

the currants stay black

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


I tell you my fellow

the sweet corn stays yellow

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


Blueberries too

will keep their dark hue

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


Those carrots stand out,

bright orange they shout

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


I perplex and frown,

as I ponder the brown

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


A vortex soup of colours blend,

a pot of gold at rainbows end

in my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


Were I an artist like Matisse,

I would paint a masterpiece

from my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


But I am just a simple poet,

rhyming words is how I show it

from my colour-full rag-tag bag.


I use the rhythms and the rhymes

to tell of smell and raw enzymes

from my colour-full rag-tag-bag.


The subject matter won’t get worse

by placing it within a verse.

The ostomate as graduand,

will be the one to understand

my colour-full rag-tag-bag.
