Is a picture a picture if it's all just white?
It’s just a blank canvas, that isn't right,
Just sitting there, alone, without any life,
And it sure ain't worth no pretty price.

Is a picture a picture if it's all just black?
It’s so unnatural, it’ll make me crack,
Boring, without any movement or being,
It’s not even worth anyone to be seeing.

But is a picture a picture if its full of pigment?
All mixing and mingling, that has fulfillment,
To eyes of the observer who is smiling with joy,
Because of the equality for all the colors to enjoy.
