A splash of red on a blue, blue day,
A red-hot colour, as if to say
'The blue of the sky and the blue of the sea
Can't hold a candle to the red of me!'


I love the work of Gerald Gee,
This time it's a cartoon.
A sense of humour such as his
Is a veritable boon.
Just look at the expression
In that naughty daddy's eye!
With three lines the artist's
Made him guilty but quite sly!
So let's consider his response!
He's got to make it slick.
' I'm studying anatomy'
That might do the trick.
'I thought it was your Mother'
Now there's a lovely thought.
' I didn't notice they were nude!'
Would be a good retort.
With these few lines the artist
Has created a situation,
Which all of us can laugh at
Enjoying his creation.

Two fun ones today, Brenda. I enjoyed both of them, because I could imagine myself being the lady in red, but could NOT imagine my husband being the man caught by his young daughter. LOL

Noted: two, or is it a three-in-one meme this week?
Would like to be there, for sure, as gloomy as it is here these days!
