Fairy Nuff

There’s a fairy—Fairy Nuff
Who sits upon my bathroom shelf,
He’s a most annoying elf.
He strews the room with bits of fluff.

Always BLUE.
You know his brethren?
According to the Internet
His breed, worldwide, is spreading.

Oh, don’t belief us?

It could be, I suppose,
Blue fibres from our clothes.
Bathroom is a place of donning,
Of pulling up and pulling downing.

But why always BLUE
When I wear white or sometimes rose?
Haven’t as much as one blue collar.
Yet it’s true . . . I learned it at school,
Blue’s considered a fugitive colour.

So there’s the answer:
Fair Enough,
The BLUE has left us
To join the fluff!

    Though for a long time in our house, all bits of fluff had at least a hint of orange in them from the cat.

      It’s their constant blueness that sent me seeking information from the Internet— only to find I’m not alone. Elsewhere in the house (apartment, flat, whatever) the fluff is the usual featureless grey. I was concerned in case this was some kind of pollution, the bathroom door being opposite the front door (incidentally in direct line for the Siberian blasts that occasionally catch us. Bad juxtapositioning of words: I didn’t mean to imply . . . 🙂 )
