Buyers of Benetton
This poem was the basis for the lyrics to the Petal song by the same name.
Buyers of Benetton, show me your colours!
Are you brown as cheap models dying in posters?
Blue as the sky over dead?
Green as those who starve for your plunder?
Royalty purple? Blood red?
Yellow as self-giving, never to no-one?
Pale as one being bled?
Black as the cloud that hangs over millions?
White as the sheet on your head?
Owen Beck 1995
