"Earie" Tale - Poem by Ima Ryma

In a fit of madness, Van Gogh
Cut off his ear so the tale "Goghs."
Then to a prostitute did show
The severed ear in bloody pose.
Truly, Van Gogh did later paint
The "Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear, "
A selfie done with self restraint,
No pain or anguish does appear.
A Paul Gauguin, a Van Gogh "friend, "
In letters by both 'twixt and 'tween,
Makes a good case that the ear's end
Resulted from an assault scene.

Theory is both made up the tale
To keep Paul Gauguin out of jail.
