Freudian Slip

Homage to Lucien Freud

Lucien, heir to Rembrandt and Freud!
Unlike his granddad, a void's just a void
On which he painted pockmarked flesh
Bright, not as you'd expect - peche.

 His nudes sat with dogs and an occasional cat
Impastos made even Kate Moss look fat
Others seemed out of excess begat
Queen Elizabeth?...an old bat.

Lucien asked me to pose in the nude
I, a prude, thought this request most rude
Depingo, he asked, "You really won't strip?"
That's when he made a Freudian slip.

  6. Looking at this beautiful woman, I don't know about Freud, but I feel like Pavlov.
