Eye Sore

That neon yellow paint on our house
Gives me the chills

It’s so outrageous that it makes me
Want to run for the hills

So I need to head into town
There’s no time to runaround

Some dull gray paint I need to fetch
A color that doesn’t make me want to retch

    I like yellow houses! They are cheerful.

    A fun poem — and a good warning about potential house colors. Thanks for inspiring a smile for me this morning 🙂

    Reminds me of a B&B in Wales. The proprietor wasn’t interested in the one nighters, had to be three or more. We didn’t stop.

    There used to be a house in town that was purple… I always heard lots of opinions about it for both sides. Neon yellow would be a bit bright.
