He was an original they say
Who certainly did things his way
Did he have a great itch
To be famous and rich?
Was his art unique or cliche?
Perhaps one day near the grotto
He overheard talk voce sotto
One thought him discerning
Found his painting secerning
The others cried, Ditto ditto!
He thought: they love me they said so
I will work for the masses ergo
One thing at a time
And all in a line
Beginning with this Campbell's Tomato.
