Artist' pray at times...

Oh Michael, Oh Jean, O Ernest, Richard

Give me the life that is full of imperfections

Brought by the brush and the pen

Michael Angelo in Italy painted pictures of Catholic churches

They transitioned in to visual trademarks

Proclaimed by the people as religious remedies

Jean Basquait dies one night talking trash with Bo-Derek cracked out on sexual sins

Ernest Hemingway mysteriously moves to East Africa

His new sleepless Seattle, suicide secretly creped inside while he wrote about death

Oh Michael, Oh Jean, O Earnest, Richard

Wright wrote the nigger native Bigger Thomas to tackle internal race relations

Battling backlash baptisms of radical reformation

The masses became inclined to segregate themselves from the art forms

Dismissing M, J, E, R

Citizens of folly, hear me roar

Passionate prayers are what they need

I desire to see the imperfections still.


You may have the universe if I may have Italy.

~Giuseppe Verdi~
