Venus de Milo


Venus de Milo sought high and low 
for her arms akimbo.  Long ago 
I offered to look too 
for those two lost ampu- 
tated limbs, but naught said that bimbo.

    This and the decapitated Winged Victory are two famous pieces of sculpture found in the Louvre. They both reminded me of damaged lawn merchandise being red tagged at a garden center. Your limerick describes that armless beauty from Paris very well.
