Paint Me Acceptable

Black market babies,
White slave markets,
I can’t handle maybes,
Stake your bets.

Paint me acceptable.
Not black,
It ain’t no fable,
Black’s no good,
And white’s too pale.
Yellow’s Hong Kong,
And red’s all gone.
Tell me who’s right,
You’ve been painting all night.

Colours all around,
And none are right I’ve found.
