Did we really have to invite Pablo
to do our family portrait again?
It may be great art to you, but to me
it just looks like I have a double chin.
You and your favorite bohemians
will be the death of me yet, I swear it.
Like that time you asked your good pal Jackson
to paint the kitchen while we were away…
I will admit that the senior portraits
you got Mr. Mapplethorpe to whip up
for Bryce were unique – but could we send them
to my folks in Kansas? I don’t think so!
So how about this, Mr. Art Lover?
Next time, we make a trip down to Wal Mart
and let some teenage kid take our photo,
squinting cheek-to-cheek, like normal people?

haha! very funny and interesting write… I wouldn't mind if picasso gave me a few chins.
Fun poem. :-)It wouldn't let me use my wordpress ID.http://poemblaze.wordpress.com
haha this one was a lot of fun…and dang its hard enough to hide the double chin in photos…much less a picasso…smiles.
This was a fun write! Loved the 'insults' of the classic artists!
Fun! Made me realize that I would have loved to have had a portrait of me done by Salvadore Dali! Maybe it's the mustache! LOL
An interesting write….love Picasso 🙂
Wonderfully amusing! And for the record, my nose and chin are from Dali.
Good to know someone else can spot the elephant in the room:)
This is is funny! Great poem!
clever incorporation, nicely done! ~ Rose
