Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Come to my room just down the hall,
and see my precious jewels.
Just sit quietly. Do not touch.
I'm sure you know the rules!
I've collected only finer things,
from places that I've been,
And when I die I'll leave it all,
to all those "next of kin".
I'm only living here for now.
My summer home is rented.
I'll drive there in my auto soon.
(It's just a little dented).
My daughter married well indeed;
a Texas oil tycoon!
I'll be moving in some day,
and she'll be coming soon.
That porcelain rose in that charming vase
is really very brittle.
My china plates, from Monkey Wards,
are only chipped a little.
My silver plated coffeepot
is only slightly rusty.
I should have fixed the handle,
and it's just a little dusty.
My pearls are from the Orient,
'Chinatown', I think.
Touch the silky elegance
of my genuine faux fur mink!
My cat is an aristocrat
with known distinctive breeding.
She tells me this each afternoon
if I should miss her feeding!
My rhinestones and my sparkles
are diamonds in the rough.
I'd purchase more at the 5 & dime,
but I really have enough.
It's strange to be a higher class
than those folks down the hall.
Some day I'll give a big soiree,
and I'll invite them all.
