I Got My Mom a Valentine by Kenn Nesbitt

I got my mom a Valentine,
the coolest one I’ve seen.
It wasn’t purple, pink, or red;
my card was brownish-green.

I thought it was a perfect piece
of Valentine’s Day art.
With nothing written on it,
it was just a big green heart.

I gave it to my mother.
I was sure she’d be amused.
Instead, she looked at me and said,
“I’m totally confused.”

I guess it wasn’t obvious.
She didn’t have a clue
my brownish-greenish card was just
to tell her, “Olive hue.”
