Day 2 of 30

STANDING IN FRONT OF THE MONA LISA
March 23, 2016

i went to see the famous smile
encased in glass and golden frame
and stood amongst the mass a while
pretended to admire style
then gave into the guessing game

i wondered if he knew her well
a lover or some other kin
where did dear Mona Lisa dwell
what story did she have to tell
what secrets lie behind that grin

but then it struck me rather odd
as camera clicked for like and share
da Vinci’s brush a mighty rod
but legend’s the omniscient god
convincing us we have to care
