The Legacy Of Romanticism
the legacy of Romanticism
by Bill Cosby
Something happened to Plaster and Rock
Subdued and replaced by Cow and Clock
Propelled by agenda of want and Fame
A-political Love, anything but the same
Da Vinci, Delacroix, The defamation of Christ
Aesthetic and Beauty your sacrifice
I will be left on a rooftop with wanting gaze
Upon faces and places Bin confusion and craze.
Of want of modernity consume and drive
Oil and silk make me feel alive
But a cliffhanger I am on a Sunday in December
And a day of ignorance, I beg to remember.
