"Very nice, dear," said his mother
"Is that meant to be a clown?
And those funny girls in blue, and all those
Swirls of muddy brown...?
A circus, did you say, dear?
Well, I s'pose that it's a start.
But I think I'll tell your teacher
That it's time you gave up art."
(With thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales for the picture, and apologies to Chagall, who was, of course, a very good artist indeed...)
