Leonardo's Lament ... or.... Life in the 'stute

I told them I could paint real fine.
They did not believe me.
They said those paintings weren't mine!
They were trying to deceive me!

I'm Leonardo, yes I am!
I told them with a grin.
And showed my painting to them,
and then they let me in.

It was the Mona Lisa
I painted it, I said.
But they did not believe me
as they strapped me to the bed.

They shipped me off to Richmond
so they could do some tests--
examined all my functions
to figure out this mess.
They stuck me with some needles--
took blood from inside out.
They asked me stupid questions
to learn what I'm about.

They took away my necktie.
They took away my belt.
They gave me a white bracelet
that was made out of felt.
They watched me sleep and watched me eat
and sat me in a chair
and when I mentioned Lisa,
they quick shaved off my hair.

They put a hat upon my head
that looked like leaning Pisa.
And so I asked them one more time
if they liked my Mona Lisa.

I went to the cafeteria,
ate meat loaf and some cake.
I was eating very calmly --
not to make mistakes.
I sat there dipping gravy,
about to take a bite
when soon a tray flew by me!
I saw an awful fight!

Meatloaf started flying
and spinach through the air!
But I just sat there eating.
I really didn't care.
They punched each other in the nose
and threw some spoons and pie.
I ducked and took another bite
and watched the plates fly by.
I finished my first helping,
chairs, tables hit the floor.
Then rose to go get seconds
because I wanted more.

They gave me a pink bracelet
for outside in the sun.
I sat in lovely gardens
alone with everyone.
They gave me a big pill to take
and then a glass of juice.
The sun shone on the daisies.
I was feeling mighty loose.
I looked for Mona Lisa
but she was not around.
I started watching spiders
crawling on the ground.

My name is Leonardo!
I yelled until they heard.
I don't belong in Richmond!
This whole thing is absurd!

They said I would be transferred
to Saint Sophia's 'stute.
I asked if Mona could come too.
They said I was a fruit.

Life inside the institute
was pretty strange, but cool.
I'm hoping Saint Sophia's
will have a swimming pool.

Now Justin Kace
You doubt his rhyme
I know that face
He's Justin Thyme

Who is this guy?
He looks like me!
Comes to my 'stute
Pretends to be

The great DaVinci
Sans Hirsute...
No one but me
Will give a hoot.

It's plain to see
That he's my twin.
Reluctlantly
They let him in.

To gain entry
He had to say
He would bring me
My dinner tray.

Meat loaf he caught
As it flew by
With that he got
Sauce from his eye.

And then to my
Bedside he came
It's dinner, Thyme
Justin's the name.

He says that he
Can paint a smile
Entrancingly
With just beguile.

It is a myth
He's just a fool
He's happy with
A swimming pool

Here at my 'stute
He'll stay as me
I've much to do
Now that I'm free

And they will think
That he is me
I've made "The Last
Judgment" you see.

To Sistene Chapel,
I must go
Because - I'm
Michelangelo!!!

OH, c'mon ONE FLEW.... don't jive these people! You know why this struck your funny chord, little buddy... you were the one with the damn flying pizza! I *still* can't believe they let you outa there. When nurse cratchet told me you were getting released, I almost punched HER in the nose... you getting out before me??? LOL. Unbelievable. And you know where Lisa is, too! You took that straw and used some ketchup and mustard and started painting her a new smile.... you little... you little.... schizo!

Now, from now on, keep it honest around here, huh?

Hey Justin, my long lost twin! Paint on, brotha!! Love the lyric melody but of course you knew I would..... we be the best damn lyricists in that ol' 'stute!

Listen, though, better be careful 'cause I heard nurse ratchet is hanging around these forums posting under some pseudonym and if she puts two and two together and comes up with four, your ass is grass, my friend! ONE FLEW said she was on to us sneakin' over into the administrative offices to use their 'puter. So, keep it easy and light.... watch your back! Oh, and next time you get on, send me the URL so I can see that really cool mural you put up in that church.Those dummies never believed we could paint! LOL! You've got one mean brush stroke, my twin!

Do you BELIEVE that ONE FLEW meatloaf slinging dude pretending he didn't know nothin' about all this? How do you think he got his name? One meatloaf flew, one fork flew, one table flew.... geez.

Far be it from me to interfere,
But have either of you seen my ear?
And though I really like your rhyme,
Both justin Kase and Justin Thyme.
You must speak fast, I must soon go,
For I'm the great Vincent VanGogh.

OMiGod....

Was that the ear
Belonged to Vince
'Twas in my pie
And not quite minced?

My brother dear
Brought it to me
Caught on the fly
I plainly see

How do you hear
Mister VanGogh?
This 'stute is mine
You surely know...

I hear just fine Justin Kase,
One ear works just as good as two.
So wipe the smirk off your face.
I have something to share with you.

I know you should be basket weaving,
So I will make this brief, you know.
Cause no one here's really believing
That you are Michelangelo!!!

Now I don't mean to drop the dime
On that brother you hold so dear
But Justin thyme made it just in time,
To save from you my lovely ear.

He switched it with Mona Lisa' big toe,
Said he owed at least this much to you.
I found it oddly strange, even so,
You found it so easy to chew.

So I say now go paint your chapel
I will give you no more slack.
They may have given me the scalpel,
But at least I got my ear back.

You may have gotten your ear back, Vincent, but half your brain's still missing.... justin kace you hadn't noticed... it was a lobotomy, remember? Oh yeah, you STILL don't remember.. LOL... better brush up on your paint strokes, little buddy.

you all should be relocked in the 'stute. you need all the help you can get.


though I'm quite sure that it's true
it's just a little too late for you
for your ears are red and green
and the nurse is really mean
and soon the peas will start to turn
as the pages start to burn
and poor lil' mona will cease to be
because your petty ass is free...

hehe


p.s. I'll burn her....

Oh, what a job the young boy had!
It wasn't very hard
But was a job disdained by all
In that hospital ward.

When they prepped someone for surgery
Before they made a cut
The young boy's job it was to pick
All small hairs from the butt.

It was a necessary task,
Infection to avoid,
But not too glamorous to pick
Those small hairs from that void.

Years later, he discovered that
His talent was quite rare
At taking paints and canvas
Making masterpieces there.

He decided to use a ficticious name
As seemed to be the craze
So he fashioned one from that silly job
Of his old hospital days.

One thing I haven't understood
Although I'm not so dumb,
I must confess I do not know
Where the "Pablo" came from.

Ok, I was following all of this until this balladeer dude comes in and writes some verse I didn't understand. What's all this have to do with hairs on someone's butt? I don't get it. Prepping someone for surgery? A fictitious name because that's some kind of "craze"? LOL... sounds CRAZY to me.... hehehe. Ok, so we got a few nuts around here, but what's this dude balladeer sneezing about?

Oh, and as far as Pablo is concerned.... damn... he's over there... there he is now.. he's in the 'stute here alright, with the rest of us. Want me to ask him to post something? LOL.

Hey, balladeer, little buddy.... you sure you don't belong in here with us?

Ok, gotta jet.... nurse ratchet's a cratchet and she's out to get me yet... see some of you in the cafeteria in the morning. 2 eggs scrambled like your brain..... hold the fruit.

You're alive, Lisa, I knew you was,
Wasn't sure at first just because
Justin Thyme ate your big toe,
And you were burned by Desperado!
But that's o.k, for all the while,
We know now why you only half smile.
Gotta run now, gotta go,
I've got some questions for Pablo!


Vincent

Pablo, Pablo, there you are,
I have been seaching long and far.
For once I had this surgery,
And guess what, 'twas you who prepped me
Now, it's no secret all can see
The scar from the lobotomy.
But even though I've half a brain,
At least what half I have is sane.
This being so, questions lie there,
Why did you remove my butt hair?
I always knew you were schizo,
But do you really think your PicASSo?

Vincent

Hey, Balladeer! What's that you say?
I think you are a NUT!
That isn't true! My last name's real.
It's not a nickname for my butt!

Next time I paint a painting here
inside this institute.
I think I'll paint a painting of
you in your birthday suit!

You seem to be hung up on butts
I think that's sort of strange.
My painting will depict your head
and butt, swapped, interchanged.

Don't mess with me, dear Balladeer!
I'm artiste, yes, first class!
Because you've started rumors here,
your face will be your ***.

sincerely yours,
Pablo

Someone here is mistaken
for I have done no faking.
My honesty rings as true
as dry grass meets fallen dew.
You think I changed a smile
with the ketchup from a pile.
Way wrong there my friend
I'll deny this till the end.
I will admit salting days
as I attacked feather lei's.
Nothing else will you have
over me, except a purple Lav.
