Verse and worse

Vincent van Gogh once painted a crow
Its plumage was white as the purest snow
And when Warhol returned from far-off Guadeloupe
He brought ten crates of canned Campbell's Soupe

and invented modern art
when teh wind caught his toupe'

Very nice rejoinder, Brian!

Sandi McBride said...

please don't let it have been crow soup! Don't think I can stand it and let's not let it be chicken soup either...how's about a nice potato soup with leeks

Sandi, you have a deal. If it's a creamy potato soup, we have a deal.

In real, if you found a white plumed crow
Would you keep it or would you just throw?
Before you decide what to do, it may swoop
And take off eating a good portion of your soup!

My lame attempt to match with yours.:)

Two different styles
One, soup in the aisles
Another very long ago
Still waits for the ear to grow

Lee said...

LOL My money would be on the rooster rather than the soup. Never did get that canned thing as art, too much like advertising. I'm with you and Sandi on the cream of potato soup with leeks. Yum!

Salvador Dali would paint from a dream
Just like the nightmare of Edvard Munch's Scream
Alcohol influenced works of Jackson Pollock's
Which frankly are just a load of old bo***cks

(oops sorry ...blush)

Said Van Gough, "Warhol, mate, Look 'ere!"
"OK" said Warol, "but you've lost an ear!"
Vincent said, "With knife was cut
me lughole - now I'm in a rut!
Now whenever I do paint
I invariably do feel faint!"
