I Am Furious (Yellow)

I guess it was pretty darn rotten o' me
To jail you in yellow monotony
Now each shade of blond is
A symptom of jaundice
And you're tempted to try self-lobotomy.

Colorful Prince Prospero drives prisoners mad in his "yellow chamber". Vincent Price, with Jane Asher in Masque of the Red Death (Roger Corman, 1964). Image source: Shadowplay, where David has an appreciation of the film.
