The Lyrics

I got sidetracked on the Villanelle nonsense. So I hope to reset the "Mona" marathon with my other post today.
Rug was on, its hue not brown, the brushes strokin’.
The quotidian expressed in 60’s time. . .
took a can of Campbell’s soup most saw as nothin’

And by a few simple movements of brushin’,
everyday object became something sublime.
Brush was on, its hue not brown, the canvas strokin’.

Critics knockin’ faux fur rockin’ on his noggin;
nearly palpable, New York Times panner’s whines:
“Painted a can of soup!” they scoffed. “He cozens!”

But he’s hot among avant garde who were purrin’
that he’d busted bound of formalism’s binds.
Race was on to give him renown for brush strokin’.

Naught but glorification from them, but searching
Was a woman for the fame of the same kind,
and her cranial coop was close to bustin’.

A gat she got; wasn’t squibs it was squirtin’.
Into him they tore, not making Andy fine.
Rug stayed on, as he went down—the gun still smokin’;
blood red as a Campbell can medics stopped spurtin’.

Saved, he bought it where healthcare he had sought it
Postoperatively in New York Hospit’.

I'm all confused now b/c technically this parody is #3 of a new line of parodies when you submitted #s 59, and 60. I should have just went off our original line (59) and did 60 but actually did new #2 and this is new #3. I think I will return back to your #59 and do true #60 off the "Mona Lisa"/"Javelina" line!!! Btw-555!

Sounds good. I'm taking off for a week but will try to keep the ball rolling.

JAB, I went back to your true X59 "Vittles Road-Aged" and completed true X60, so we are back on track again. The 3 new parody excursion was fun too, but complicated things. I would like to try a target goal of X100 with our current series :)
