Peons Wear Blue

Peons wear blue because that is predominately what the powers-that-be make available to us at the stores we can afford. Look in anyone's wardrobe, do you see an assortment of pretty peaches, sunshine yellows, fresh greens, or royal purples? Nope. We are trained to think that we like what we have, clothing in sky or water blue. Peons are color-coded blue, with a splash of blood red here and there. Take a look at people out and about, most of them are dressed in regulation blue, blue for peon.


A peon is a person who does menial work; a mindless drudge. If you think that you might be a peon, chances are that you are. Peons are low-ranking persons who have little control over their work and lives. We certainly do not have much choice when it comes to clothing. I like blue well enough, but for goodness' sake give me some wide-open color choices.
