Out Of Greens!!

Christopher McKay 1989 (California)



Out of greens!
Out of greens!
What do you mean-
out of greens?!
Could it be?
Don't you see?
Doesn't it seem-
We're out of greens?!
Out of greens!
Out of greens!
What do you mean-
Out of greens?!
This must be some kind of Scheme?
No it's not, you see you see!
As you know, we're out of greens!
