Why is Apple juice orange?

Why is Apple juice orange?
Too orange,
yes it looks pretty,
and very clear.
Yes, very clean.
But, why is it orange?

Aren't oranges supposed
to be orange?
No orange juice ain't no red?
Apples are
also green,
also golden.
Is orange juice
ever golden green?

Apple juice does
taste funny
It does not feel
too orange.
Yes, I know, it is
Apple. But,
something strange
the way it tastes,
makes me sit up.
It tastes like a cough syrup.

My spirits now
are pretty low.
Now, I think
the orange is
nothing but a yellow.
