How do bottle collectors chase away the blues?…
A weekend ago, Brenda’s mood turned to blue.
The indigo bottle that she’d tried to glue
Was missing a piece.
But now she’s found peace.
Did Brenda go drinking? She’s drunk. That’s a clue!

You worked in a reference to ‘Mood Indigo’. Well done, David.
Best wishes, Pete.
Actually, it was in the back of mind, as were several other ideas. In the rainbow, indigo is between violet and blue, and I originally thought about using the name Violet. But I wanted to insert rhymes in the beginning of lines 1, 2, and 5 (weekEND AGO / INDIGO / brENDA GO), so I went with Brenda. Thanks for the link, Pete. I enjoyed hearing the music again!
Violet was my Mum’s name, but we rarely associated it with the colour.
