Poems of the Week

Ooh La La Moola

by Mae Scanlan

Da Vinci’s painting, ‚ÄúSavior of the World,”
On Wednesday last, at auction, was unfurled.
It fetched four hundred fifty million bucks,
And sold in less than twenty minutes. Shucks,
When I allow that figure to get tossed
Inside my brain, it’s somewhat like the cost
When Trump and some suave Middle Eastern shah go
To spend a bit of time at Mar-a-Lago.
