The famous painters model.

My thoughts on Mona Lisa,
lie shattered in the dust,
she was the girl from Napoli,
I called the 'Upper Crust.'
...........................................
She'd pose for me at Sunset,
with a whooping pose for tea.
When Pay Day came around,
I knew where she would be.
............................................
Her smile gave such a story,
of life around the Bar,
of Wine, Pasta and gipsies,
all linked up to her Star.
.....................................
But the smile hid a dream,
of children two by two,
I was broke, had no money,
so I sent her off to you.
..........................................
Each year I send a card,
to hang upon the tree,
she puckers, gives it a kiss
saying all the times it's me.
.............................................
I wait for New Year to come,
on beauty I mean to start,
I'm talking bare calendar girls,
Mona's a spanking kind of Art.
The end.

Hot damn! great poem. There are so few people mocking (sorry I lack a better word, perhaps disecting?) what so many consider as sacred. I mean people see Paul Mcartney as a golden God, yet he probably has 100 illegitimate children. Again well done.
