Poem by: Philip Roberts

Summary

Okay, so this is black comedy, but I stand by it. Picasso could NOT paint, his techicolour vomit-stains are NOT art!

When Pablo Picasso first tried to paint
He found that he was colour blind,
And when he tried using join-the-dots
His dyslexia left him in a bind.

For without being able to read or count
He joined up all the wrong numbers,
And the colour-blind critics hailed his work
Before old Pablo realised his blunders.

So what could poor old Pablo do?
Except continue on his blundering way,
Fooling the false-intellectual critics
And ignoring those who saw he couldn’t paint.

So for decades he continued stumbling along
Being hailed as the genius that he never was,
But Pablo wasn’t really trying to cheat
His colour-blindness and dyslexia were the cause:

The cause of all his awful works
Paintings best burnt, not hung up on walls,
But while the false-intellectuals rule
Picasso’s undeserved fame will never fall.

THE END
