I went to the automat
with Madame Tetrachromat
She stared at each item
but didn't bite them
except each hue from the red to the blue
met with her fourfold approval.
"This one's medicinal!",
she exclaimed about the salad,
"And this one will kill you, lad,
in considerably less than a minute!
This one's got iodine in it,
That one's got arsenic.
See that shade of grink—
that means it's okay to drink!".
