No darkness, drabness or sadness; could ever
depress or compress Mona Lisa's rainbow smile.
Because, Mona Lisa has the most expensive smile
on planet earth and planet smile.
when Mona Lisa is been tickled from teeth to toe,
her smile; gladly frowns, because of the bitter
catastrophe the world is frowning and groaning
All though, she is protected in the most secured
museum, to hide her away from being kidnapped
by Sandy hurricane, or get consumed by the
And she is also been auctioned for over a hundred
million dollars; just to make sure; that the rainbow
smile remains on her Florence face, but her smile;
Because she is constantly waiting for the day, the
earth shall sue the heaven's to court; for striking
down the unwanted fallen angel to earth, and
causing unfriendly hurricanes and numerous
deserters, to sip away her loved ones, that sweat;
just to appreciate her mistic smile.
They polish so hard; to hide Mona Lisa; behind a
fat smile, so as to put her fat frown to sleep.
But her frown still tip-toes on relay; whispering
through the colours of her original breathing
Which sails in an emotion of muse; and dances
around inspiration, love, hurt, power, temper,
creativity, wealth, betrayal, lessons, and wisdom.
And even at midnight, when sight and light starts
to shrink; this inks up her memories and mocks the
regalia of her smile, with transcending frowning
I wrote this poem, because; right from when I was
a child, I kept looking at the painting, Mona Lisa
smile, and all people talk about is her smile, and
they forget to talk about the other side of her life.
eg like: was she a happy person? How was her
love life? Was she a friendly lady? Did she like kids,
like a true mother should? Was she a good
student? Did she like sex? Lol. Did she drink,
smoke,weed, or do drugs, etc. So all this made me
to come up with this poem; 'Mona Lisa Frowns'.
Just to paint my own poetic picture of her. Enjoy.
