ODE to the MURAL; It's Not a Sign!
from gloriana casey
Graffiti-- once lived on this wall
of Patticakes---in fact.
This MURAL -- with its work of art
took neighborhood right back!
But County person hears complaint
and sees only a sign.
A MURAL is a work of art
while signs aren't all benign.
No words appear upon this wall,
it's colored joyfully.
"Aha!" said one, " but icons show
what in this shop will be!"
Iconic MURAL?--- American!
This style is called POP ART.
The Andy Warhol Soup Cans, true
brings millions to art mart!
So please, County, do not mistake
this MURAL for a sign!
"For life is short, but art is long,"
and icons are no crime.
Perhaps "complainers" worship then
the Cubist man---- Duchamp?
Want " Nude Descending a Mousse Cake?"
Style change? No no, you can't!
Plus, don't forget this MURAL sits
upon four cornered street.
For business living on this quad---
then let the MURAL speak!
A benefit for all around
as marker, it is blessed.
For lost drivers--a helpful hint,
an artful GPS!
And where on Allen, do you live?
Just find the coffee cup.
Turn left or right and find that home,
a visitor's new luck!
Iconic? Yes, like city near,
where FORK stands in the road!
For art, it builds a city up,
and fortunes rise, I'm told.
So County, County--please refrain!
This MURAL loved by city!
For coffee cup--iconic there,
is sweeter than graffiti!***
