What Is Green?

by a young man, age 10

Green is as cool
As a sweet pickle
Green makes me happy
Because it means everything to me.
Green are peas for dinner
Green is peppermint ice cream
Green is bling bling
Green is the color of money.

If I were green
I would be a lemon-lime popsicle
My name would be Green Money Popsicle
I’ll be funny to eat
Because when people
Bite into me
I’d laugh like a donkey.


Dedicated to my mom
