LOOKS LIKE MONA LISA, SMELLS LIKE TUNA FISH
Michelle Shocked


All over again

It would be a photograph

She would have a wide grin

But no, it was an artist

With a longing loving style

So when the paint was dry

All that remained was a

Faint strange smile


She's ripe with broken dreams

Her lovers never stay

It looks like Mona Lisa

Is having a bad day


"The Book of History

Has many missing pages"

Murmurs the Madonna

Of the Middle Ages

but in between her cracks

you can read between the lines

She's love nothing better than

To rob the Louvre blind


Baroque and complicated

Her lovers never stay

it looks like the Mona Lisa

Is having a bad day


So please, just go away
