Oh! He said; that’s just bizarre:
blue doesn’t belong with food!
It stayed on my mind and I looked
in my books;
found cobalt berries and cyanide jellies,
and aquamarine apples and figs.
Further along, there were goodies
in cerulean bottles and bowls,
but nothing could tempt me.
Now I will tell this dear boy the truth:
that I’m totally stymied,
forsooth he has got me all burdened
and bothered by blue!
The tint of my mood has turned to despair,
so I have decided to cook up a dish;
a big hearty stew,
that will soothe and bring solace anew.
But for my casserole, I’ll use what I know’
The vivacious, beloved, vermillion:
