I created this painting depicting Greta Thunberg because I like her resilience, toughness and dedication. The clowns of the world can't stand her and they criticize her. They don't want to hear the truth. They're afraid of her, of the influence she has. They should be.
My muse and wife, Misty Rae, was inspired to write this poem based on Greta and the painting:
Sometimes the truth is hard to bear,
The fly in the ointment
noone wants to see.
We shield our eyes,
blocking the nasty unpleasantness
from ruining our fun.
Yet see, we must
As the party continues...
it also ends
And if I'm the only one that sees,
That speaks up,
A lone voice on the water,
So be it.
you HAVE been warned.
It's fun when two forms of art come together. If you enjoy her poetry, I encourage you to check her out under her pen name, Melissa Rae here:
