She lay down on a piece of paper,
Head in blue paint, body in pink.
She splashed her arms around a bit
And cried: "Hey! Mother! What d'you think?"
Her mother said, "it just won't sell, dear.
There's too much trashy art around.
You think you can make money? No, dear.
Get a degree. That's best, I've found."
"But Mum, you said I should have something
'To fall back on' - won't this do?
I fell back on this piece of paper.
I only did it to please you!"
