Colour My World

There are only seven colours in a rainbow
There are no other colours of which I know
Peach for example, is not a colour but a fruit
So are Avocado, Pumpkin, and Plum to boot
I don’t know how you would categorize
Things like Sahara, Safari and even Sunrise
Fuchsia, Fawn or Oatmeal you can choose
And there’s Beige, Stone and similar hues
They’re not colours as I said from the start
So why do they appear on a colour chart?
