Children’s Rhyme: A World Without Rainbows

Rain and shine
When they combine
They have a little fun
A splash of water
and the sun
A light
so bright
a sight for everyone

What comes alive
a prism of colours
Made to thrive
Not one alone but all united as one

When ends are met
Each colour
Completes the set
And across the sky they run

But if there was only one colour
As some people wish
Think of all the beauty
Everyone would miss
It saddens me to hear it
So my question
for those people is this:
Do you really want to live in a world
Where rainbows don’t exist?

National Women’s Day is a South African public holiday celebrated annually on 9 August. The day commemorates the 1956 march of approximately 20,000 women to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to petition against the country’s pass laws that required South Africans defined as “black” under The Population Registration Act to carry an internal passport, known as a pass, that served to maintain population segregation, control urbanisation, and manage migrant labour during the apartheid era.

  1. Are you talking about the trend for dark-coloured things? Like cars >_<.

    I find it interesting that Audis only seem to come in black, and most Mercedes/BMWs are dark colours. Overall people are going for dark colours with cars, but the people who drive those ones in particular do.

    It seems that people are going for more and more aggressive-looking carsโ€” bigger and darker, and with ever-brighter LED headlights. It's all a bit depressing! That's just my personal rant ๐Ÿ™‚
