Skin Tone

I lay upon the beach

As the sun beat down

My pale body

Turning red, crimson 

Then brown

It is a healthy tan

And as I looked around

There were many others

Turning doing just the same

But when we get home again

As time slowly goes by

The tan begins to fade 

As my body starts to de-tan

Skin tones forever change 

Can anyone explain

Why is there’s such a fuss

About the colour of the skin

Of the rest of all mankind
