My Idea of Good Art

My Idea of Good Art

By Elton Camp

I dislike a lot of art that I see
But know others may disagree

Sloppy color applied nilly-willy
Then call it art, to me, seems silly

A woman’s face with three eyes
Some modern artist often tries

Her body is like some kid composed
For from her chest grows her toes

To some who look, it’s just great
That type art, I most intensely hate

Is the painter just being funny
Taking gullible people’s money?
Artist, paint what you actually see
To get praise from a hick like me
