The Mag 157 Venus de Milo With Drawers...

Every Sunday I await Tess Kincaid's unique writing challenges to be inspired by her visual prompts.  Never letting us down, today she present Venus de Milo with Drawers by Salvador Dali.  Join the challenge and read other pieces that were borne from this very different visual prompt today.  No guidelines in regards to style, keep it clean and link up at Magpie Tales.
Imagine Venus with drawers
She already had a cloth
What she needed was arms
But at her loss we scoff

Dali gave her knobs instead 
And places to hide your stuff
Although this adds depth and use
Having arms would be a plus

I admire Dali's talent
But fear inside his head
I would add a one drawer wonder
By installing a jack-in-the-box instead

Clever and humorous. What was Dali thinking?

Manzanita said...

Yeah, without arms, how the heck do you open drawers? A clever rhyme.
And your header is a blog opener, too.

Great verse. I really like it. Yes, she only needed arms and he gave her all these knobs instead! Last stanza is great.

Bravo- I don't even believe Dali would have thought of that Jack-in-the-box - but imagine how cool it would be!

He has made Venus look silly, so a Jack in the box would have been perfect.

Yup! I'm with Jack and his box, too!
