I had just eaten a banana, which skin was a shade of the darkest brown. I wondered why bananas chose to go brown. It’s not very appetizing, is it?
Why not go white, the colour of an aeroplane that had swept through the sky, passing clouds above?
Why not go pink, the colour of a ballet tutu, dancing its own sweet dance?
Why not go yellow, to disguise the fact that is was dying of old age?
Why not go green, the colour of grass?
Why do you choose to go brown, the colour of violins, playing sad melodies?
