A man in silhouette with a pink backpack

The Pink One

In a sea of black,

This guy’s backpack

Dares to be pink;

But it’s not what you think –

He’s not LGBT;

It’s a strategy –

When exiting,

It’s easier identifying,

So, no one needs to ask or think –

And can instead pull it out in a blink.

Sometimes, it’s better

Not having anyone to talk to.

That way, you listen to

The only one you need to.
