Fiddling about

The Leonardo that came through the letterbox
rocks and
it fits very neatly on the wall,
the woman who’s in it ain’t that much
but
fair’s fair
I never paid bugger all.

The bedroom could do with a Renoir
it’s not often you see one of those
but
all I can afford is a Hockney
of
some geezer with bloody great toes.

The kitchen’s the place for my Lowry
which
cost me a King’s ransom
and her dowry,
