    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Tina asked: "I know somewhere a while back asked if there was a poem for an M&M's gift. Each color of the M&m's meant this and that and you'd use it if you bought the package of 5 or 6 test tubes in an acrylic case. Do you know it?"
    A: MAGICAL M&M'S

    Each color is a different cure;
    Of this fact, we're very sure.
    When you're grouchy and a little mean,
    We truly recommend the green.
    For times when you are down,
    The very best choice will be the brown.
    Orange's oh so special coating.
    Will help minimize any bloating.
    If you have an ache in your head,
    This will surely be cured by the red.
    Need something to help you be mellow?
    Take a dose of the yellow.
    If anxiety feelings overcome you,
    Just eat a hefty handful of blue.
    And, if your day comes unglued,
    Just eat the whole tube!
