The Artist

The Artist and his Luckless WifeThey lead a horrid haunted life,Surrounded by the things he's madeThat are not wanted by the trade.

The world is very fair to see;The Artist will not let it be;He fiddles with the works of God,And makes them look uncommon odd.

The Artist is an awful man,He does not do the things he can;He does the things he cannot do,And we attend the private view.

The Artist uses honest paintTo represent things as they ain't,He then asks money for the timeIt took to perpetrate the crime.
