Honestly, I don't know much about Van Gogh. I just think he is the general image for artists of the day, scorned until they're gone, then severely missed.

Determined by the ever raging liars,
the painter weaves his strokes.
Dancing colors cross his mind as we put him down.
Imaginative wonders his murals are.
Scorned by the untouched.
All his days are coated in reds and blues.
Another madman in the news.
Still he brushes on for none other than his craving.
Artistic melodies and ragmeat stews.
Never ending,
never dying,
his urge to brush.
And yet no hero's come to rush.
In the end, death is not in vain.
For a painter who's far from sane.
A million dollar piece,
for a billon dallar soul.
The madman painter
Vincent Van Gogh.
