Spot the Beta--an Octopoem

Today's poem is an Octopoem. Eight lines of deliciousness. They start with these topics:
1.color
2.season
3.place
4.weather
5.clothing
6.furniture
7.TV show
8.food

Here's my poem:

Spot the Beta

Spot the Beta is a wonderful blue with glittering mauve and light green too.
He looks like an Easter egg colored and grand
Though he lives in a bowl with a castle and sand
The weather inside there is always quite fine
Which is why he wears nothing but slippers and twine.
He has a sweet rock and some fake orange weeds
And a tiny TV where he watches the Reeds
What, you ask, is his favorite food? It's scrambled egg and it's really quite good.
