A blind man was walking through a lush forest when he came upon three evil shades lurking in the shadows. The shades spoke to the man:

"Our first is regal and magical true,

But also a sign that something hurt you,

Our second rises with the sun,

From atop a tree it's name did come,

Our third is most prevalent here,

All three are secondary, Dear.

What are we?"

Purple is often associated with with royals, due to the extreme value of purple dye in the past. I'm not sure where danger comes into it (maybe specific drugs or danger on Baldwin County public beaches, guessing from a quick google search). Bruises are often purple.

Our second rises with the sun, From atop a tree it's name did come,

The Sun often appears orange, as does the sky while it's rising; Oranges grow on trees.

Our third is most prevalent here,

In a forest, most things are Green.

All three are secondary, Dear.

The secondary colors are purple, green and orange.
