Scarlet Solitude (The Poem and The Painting), Oil on Board, 16" x 20", 2011
Look deep into my eyes
there's no surprise
Look right across my face
It's deprived of grace
I am human
what about you?
I ain't no prisoner
from the zoo!
Look at me, don't try to hide
Look, man, I have lost my pride.
The latest developments have made me weep
All their promises they never keep.
What's this life all about?
Why am I here?
Should I laugh and smile
or just shed a tear?
Listen to me, just for this once
I could be your brother, I am no dunce.
Ok, you you hate me, fair, that's fine,
I'll bear no grudges, I am no deadly swine.
Finally let me just say one thing to you
you could have been me and I could have been you....
Think about it...
