That's what they say, but it just isn't true.
Roses are red, and apples are too!
But violets are violet. They simply aren't blue.
An orange is orange, but Greenland's not green.
A pinky's not pink....So what's it all mean?
To call something blue when it's not, we defile it.
But ah, what the heck....It's hard to rhyme violet.
