The Triumvirate


I think Gauguin might have turned in his grave, if he'd known about this re-construction of his painting, which Tess so ably chose for her Mag #117
 

Trell is lunching with Ada and Caddoc
on Colwyn Bay's finest boiled haddoc.
Said Trell "This is vile!
It smells like the piles 
that donkeys discharge in their paddoc."

To which a handy passer by was heard to mutter in reply:

" I have a hunch this sorry bunch
were hoping for a spot of lunch.

But oh my goodness gracious me
they must have been bananas!
There's Ada sandwiched in between
a right old pair of charmers…"

  4. Clever twist to The Bananas, Trellis! A beautiful limerick and a great verse. The bonus is the chuckle no, the laughs that are always there accompanying, from your great mind.

  6. That is so funny. Gauguin probably would not be amused, but he isn't here.

  12. I appreciate that any means that art does not prevent freedom of expression. Many participants commented Such Magpie my picture and I commented his poems, I participate as an equal. My photos are not for sale and in my blog there is no publicity. I've never made ​​money with photography, as I have never sold a single picture. My interests are artistic and not commercial. Anyway I respect your opinion and thank you for the freely expressed. Best wishes.

  17. Wonderful and forget Gauguin. This picture is what he would have painted if he could have. But, I wonder if the bowl contains kava, not fish soup? It must be kava, or Ada would not have chosen to sit closest to it!
