Drawing With Ink and Brush

DRAWING WITH INK AND BRUSH By the corner of the room, there you'd find the comely girl who draws and paints with just her ink and brush. She looks and observes carefully, and then draws not only what the eyes see but also the souls of men. Others like her draw and edit, they touch and alter so their painting is rid of imperfections. They know with flattery, falsehood and deceit, they get what they want. so they paint what the people want to see. But the artist who draws and paints rendering a representation of life the way it is, receives little or no accolades. Oftentimes, the artist is perceived as hardy and complex but the craft is soft and adds value to lives. In that little corner of hers, she espies the world through a lens and draws what she sees devoid of taradiddle. Unafraid she stands, and calls you what you are then proceeds to draw a portrait of you. It rattles many how naked they stand before the painter whose drawings depict the true image of who they are. With just her ink and brush, the comely girl by the corner of the room draws both the gangbusters and grotesque of the world.

Ah, but "the masses are stupid" and only see what they want to see, like teenagers incapable of seeing the flaws in their eye candy! Enjoyed! Aloha!
