All the Fun of the Fair!


Gerald Gee

ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR!

Painted in stealth with stolen paint,
(The artist, clearly, was no saint!)
This joyous picture bears no taint
Of ancient larceny!
We often hear the virtuous say
'Mark my words! Crime does not pay!'
But things worked out in a happier way
For the artist, Gerald Gee.
