Art and its people

Fickle Art and control Freaky
Don't play well together
Tolerance was not accepted
'Cause he wore pink shoes

Cross the street each day at the same intersection
Fickle Art and control freaky but the road was not
And never could be big enough for these two to share

Time square and Big Ben don't speak the same lingo
Don't hold the same values to be sacred 
Dust will blow and dust will go
Huff and puff, back to the dust

Medical examiner what stopped his heart?
Lack of tidal volume, puffed too long
Collapsed a lung...Fire up the crematory

Is it dusty in here?

***Artist note:  Ever get tired of the windbags can't let you live your life and them theirs? I sure do.

    Ooh…this is precious. Kudos for the topic and "delicate" handling of the players. Maybe some would huff and puff a bit less if they'd put tongue-in-cheek occasionally and lighten up:-) Enjoyed, John

    you have a unique way of putting things. I enjoyed this one. Cute way to show the contrast of control freaky and fickle art.
