Purple and Green

Why is it that nature always gets its color schemes right, 
while people never take the hint, often getting it wrong?
I mean, flowers never show up in a ghastly plaid,
with yellow and black too tight for their rose hips.
Even with their blatant sensuality, flowers' curves 
never quite spill out of their gowns.
People, though, are a whole 'nuther story.

I'm going to the office dressed in spiky purple and green today.

Yeah. Sure. And I'm going as Cleopatra entering Rome, pretending my bus is a Sphinx.

I wore a purple sweater and green tie (true), but I didn't have anything spiky.
