This article was written under normal conditions.
There was no atom of evil in me when I wrote it and its meant to just get a good laugh out of you.
Hey there, Mr Sanguine.
You’ve tried gaan.
I thought it was only guys like me that you loved riding. I didn’t know you’ve widened your boundaries.
If its not the zebra you’re riding, its the green python.
Today its the tiger, tomorrow, its the crocodile. Even the lastma and kai officials have had to watch their swag stolen from them.
Ostriches have cried foul tire, the butterflies are green with envy, roses, hibiscus and ‘formerly’ dashing species in the flower world are pissed. And you know why? Its cuz you took their shine.
And mine too.
You see, I’m that melancholic guy.
Yea, the one with the massive glasses and horrible braces. The one you called geek in high school.
You’ve always left me in the dark with your bustling personality and sweet speeches.
I’ve watched you get the hottest girls, watched you take all the spaces on the football team and leave the mascot job to me. In fact, I’ve watched you get everything you wanted and those you didn’t want too, and you left me to cater for myself by rummaging on your leftovers.
I watch you galivant in parties ( that’s even when I get to go) and take all the attention.
At the parties, I only got the girls that looked like me, and that’s not a metaphor or oxymoron.
You think am lying right?
How would you know when you’re busy having fun?
You could ask chris from everybody hates chris though, he should be able to explain how I feel.
What if he can’t, you say?
Well, there are tons of us in the universe;
Leonard and sheldon from Big Bang Theory, the other man ( definitely not ashton kutcher or charlie sheen) in two and a half men. You could ask them too.
We’ve coped with your excesses all these years but now, you’ve taken it too far.
You had the guts to invent another weapon of oppression and you were so sinister about it that you gave it an indifferent name “Colour Blocking”
You should have just called it
Mel-Blocking or Geek-Blocking cuz that’s what it does all right.
Why should you wear neon-green, orange or even glowing red? Its so not right and not fair to us.
Before, you needed your tongues and bravery(or was it pride?) to put us in the background, now, all you do is Wear it.
Imagine, wear it!
Its not enough that we find it hard 2 walk up to a beauty and say Hi, you had to make sure she dosent even look elsewhere but you. Not all of us can be as lucky as Zuckerberg you know.
Look at your lips, your dance steps, now your clothes!
Its a fair game though.
My people appeal to your people.
Get those colours away or we take our gadgets and inventions away.
And I mean it, all of them; Apple, Ferrari, Internet, Twitter, all of them.
Push us to the fence and we’ll do just that.
But then, its a friendly battle, so we would be nice about it unlike you.
You have an ultimatum though; start making our lives black and white again and we’ll leave you technologically literate or we would have to follow the advice of one of us.
“One warning is enough for the wise”
