Oh, How Boring

Today’s prompt requires us to scour the news for something boring. 
It didn’t take long. 
“Duchess Catherine has gray roots,”
proclaims the news website.

The scorn begins to flow
Alongside a river of praise.
“This is what the world is”
mourns one reader.

The prompt wants a connection.
I find one when I look in the mirror.
My own non-gray roots are coming through, fading red.
Care for appearance unites people the world over.
