I imagine van Gogh on his scooter today
Getting out of downtown traffic.
To the country he is rushing
To snap away for the National Geographic.


All those close-ups of sunflowers, insects and trees
With his camera he could have taken.
But a painter he was, so he painted instead.
And his artistry isn't forsaken.


Go to Ottawa soon; you will see for yourselves
Forty paintings that could have been photos.
As for those "painting" digital pictures these days,
Hope they learn from old frescoes in grottos.
