Poem: "Seafoam Fashions"

This is the freebie for the May Muse Fusion over in torn_world.  It was inspired by a prompt from haunted_blood.  I figure that, when stores receive the first shipment of clothes in the new fashion color, they would hang banners announcing it to their customers. Stores that could afford it might put someone out front to sing jingles. (This works. I've done it at Renaissance faires.) So seafoam is the color that everyone wants, and this is an advertising jingle for it.

Seafoam Fashions

Seafoam's the color
For you and for me:
As blue as the sky,
As green as the sea.

Seafoam's in fashion;
The sale banners fly.
Seafoam's the fabric
We all want to buy.

Seafoam's the color
For me and for you:
Marvelous value,
Part green and part blue.

Seafoam's in fashion,
So come try it on.
Hurry for seafoam,
Before it's all gone!
