Longhi - Poem by Morgan Michaels

Some enjoy a Goya
They could stare at one all day
Or find Rembrandt transcendent
Or put their stock in Klee

Or happily ogle Turners
(though I find it a little vague)
Or one of a dozen 'Van-ders'
In the Kunst Halls of the Hague.

Some find Friedrich ripping
Or tilt for Tiepolo
Others find Bacon bi-ching
And some di Chirico.

Some see nothing to pardon
In lots of Chardin's things
While a trip to Monet's garden
Sends many viewers wings.

Some claim Bosch is best
Or Breughel, young or old
Many for Klimmt will stimmt
While another finds him cold.

But I really like Longhi
And I more or less confess
I really do like Longhi
For me, old Longhi's best.

Maybe he's not the greatest
Painter, of all times
But I really, really like him-
Longhi rings my chimes.

Maybe you cream for El Greco
Or poor, insane Van Gogh
Or one of those French guys, maybe,
From the oh, so Rococo.

Or maybe a fete gallante
From the palette of Watteau
Or maybe it's Durer you prefer
Or some such English fellow.
