When will Art pay the Bills?

SEE THIS IN PRINT IN THE BOOK ‘PRAYER AND TRIVIALITY’, available on Amazon 🙂


I love to paint most scenery;

Sunsets over the hills.

But canvasses are so costly –

When will Art pay the bills?

And flowers, too, I like to paint

Like roses; daffodils.

Resources aren’t without restraint –

When will Art pay the bills?

Paintings stored on wardrobe tops,

Or perched on window sills…

No telling where the storage stops!

When will Art pay the bills?!

Like some disease it keeps on growing:

Space it quickly fills…

I wouldn’t mind just one day knowing

When will Art pay the bills?!

Starts as a hobby, but you know

One’s free time it soon kills…

And bank account wants it to go!

When will Art pay the bills?!

Out of control – I cannot stop it:

Art goes where it wills.

But I could never bear to drop it;

When will Art pay the bills?!

But pleasure – truly Art does pay

To remedy all ills…

And yet I still would like to say,

When will Art pay the bills?!

Like greedy lodger is this Art

Demanding all the frills…

Consuming pocket, space and heart;

When will Art pay the bills?!
