2023 Winner

Lime Green

The sparkling can of Sprite is sizzling so loudly,

Cotton candy grapes don’t have cotton candy filling,

Green M&M’s are clean chocolate beans for jeans,

Lime key pies can make an appetite gracious,

Granny Smith apples all belong to Granny Smith,

Turtles tend to be terps while in the state of Maryland,

Iguanas wanna wear pajamas and grow beards,

Chameleons become colorblind with their camouflage,

Snakes slither just like Flash who is the world’s slowest sloth,

Frogs leap to Sweet Frog to enjoy free frozen yogurt,

Water lilies and tiger lilies both love their pretty appearance,

Summer leaves stay on trees until they change color and then fall off,

Cactuses out in the deserts can be sharp as a COVID vaccine,

Fresh grass spread out for hangry horses to munch on,

You can use GloZell’s green lipstick to become a queen bee.
