If I take you straight to bed
you will think that I'm a tart.
Let's be cultural instead:
off we go to look at art.
As I stand with legs apart
gazing at a splash of red
by some over-rated fart,
just you watch my pretty head.
It is full of things I've read:
I have insights to impart;
concepts that will knock you dead.
Tonal values, for a start.
Hermeneutics. Why Descartes
got it wrong. What Croce said.
Inconsistencies in Barthes.

OK. Now we'll go to bed.
