Coloured

We didn't want
Our deities black,
The skin colour
Of our subjects,
Preferred them
To be green or blue
When we had
To adopt them
As avatars
Or consorts
Or sisters
Or devotees
Invented
Mind-boggling
Family trees for them;
How nice it would be
If we could change complexion
With the seasons
Or age,
Or day and night
Or with moods
So that we can know
When we are young
When we are growing old
When we are happy
Take a flight
Go back in time
Catch the day
Or shade elsewhere
