Guess That Art II! Mr. Potato Head meets Annie Lane.

Ronovanwrite’s has given us the Pablo Picasso painting to think about. Then he’d like us to write a poem of how we see it. The painting is Gurnica. Painted in 1937 it is a very grafic portrayal of war.

Guess That Art 2 image

Death laughs

This is a war of two halves

Slaughter house rules

Mutilation carried out by fools.

Women and children first

Come on big man do your worst.

Then let’s take innocent animals out.

They are just sport no doubt.

The death wheel will do another turn.

We will we choke on fumes as bodies burn.

It’s the war mill and we are the grist.

We are just humans and the lord is pissed.

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Guess that Art 11

    It was a massacre perpetrated by the Nazi aviation in Spain in 1937, a test run, invited by Franco. Civil war is always terrible. The images recall other paintings of the massacre of the innocents and Goya’s paintings of war.

    It’s the mindless slaughter that is so incomprehensible. Nicely done.
