When he manifest
A chestnut vest
Laddered in hues
Of orange, yellow and black.
And for a hat,
He took the best
In finest elysium gold.

This poem is easy to digest
And doesn’t require you to invest
Beyond five lines of effortfulness.
It’s a snack to wet your appetite,
Tide you over till the main meal.
