ROYGBIV

Yellow
quite salty on the tongue
Sadly, it is also a prelude to madness!

Orange
a rhomboid prokaryote
deep in the gut aiding with digestion!

Red
the broken Angel
stalking the streets at night
looking for the wretched
and the misunderstood

Blue
the newest form of inertia,
a strain against activity.
Even Blue cannot halt
the layering of much needed mulch!

Indigo
the Son of the Soil
It is the soil which heals by killing!
It is the soil which boils alive its inhabitants!
It is also that which provides sustenance to all!

Green
is too damn green!
It goes on and on and on
with no end in sight

Violet
unspeakable acts of torture in pursuit of joy
It is anxious and slow burning
There is no remedy for violet
