Sorting Laundry

Have you ever wondered
how grey was invented?
I like to think that somewhere
there was a washer woman
who
on a dare 
mixed  black and white
So pleased she was
by what she made 
that she gave it  a name. 
"Gray"
she said. 
It was both dark and light
It was shy and bold
It was not at all dim
it was only bright 
She believed that great
things could come from this.
And so they did.
