Liner Notes: 

The prompt suggested to me 3 wildly different tableaux that together cast a daming light on the state of the world. Short and stark.


Sean McGaughey Pretty Little Picture SS060719H (C) July 6, 2019
Still life in 3 acts.

A pretty little picture
still life with flowers
hangs above the breakfast table
Spreading joyful light in pre-dawn hours

A pretty little picture
hangs inside a prince's yacht
bought at auction for ninety million
promised to a museum then forgot.

A pretty little picture
Stick figures drawn in brown
Pinched into the links of a cage
Cries of Mama, but there are none around.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
