Abstract art expressed a certain feeling
Even though it left just a few reeling ...
For "drip-style" paintings get blank stares
As we try and fathom just who would dare
Try and sell ... something we all can make
Just by spreading paper under walls we cake
With paint splatter here, there and everywhere
Then framing it with a gilt edge, thus to share
Perhaps, the really amazing feat of it all ...
Is how Pollock (and others) ran with this ball
Achieving fame and recognition for eternity
When others slave on without any return fee
