Curator: “Subjects A, B and C, these are artworks, you see? Now tell me dear Sir, which one will it be?”
Narrator: Subject A as he saw, was as tall as a tree.
A gigantic white canvas with not much to see.
Staff: “A dot and a line, you need it!”
Prime Minister: “A dot and a line… oh, now I see it!”
Narrator: Subject B as he saw was as small as a pin
A clean little jar and inside one hair.
Staff: A hair in a jar, you need it!
Prime Minister: “A hair in a jar… oh, now I get it!”
Narrator: Subject C, or so he thought, was of modest proportions.
As red a cherry and black as the night.
Here was his next buy displayed in plain sight.
Prime Minister: “I dare say, dear Ma’am What an exquisite work!
How much for this sculpture?How much for this piece?”
Curator: “Oh my prime minister what an excellent choice!
One sees without doubt your most clairvoyant nature.
Yet this subject has no price.”
Narrator: From subjects A, B and C He did not choose you see.
The fire extinguisher is missing from the gallery.
And the prime minister’s happy, just happy to be.
