Nature Boy by giuanne
Nature Boy
very unsure about this painting, spent two days on it and it didn't turn out so good, tell me what you think lf it please
Loading...
To the estates that rot and fester in pain
to the west end killers who think its a game
to the happy go lucky who can see no wrong
and the ones who know better so tough and so strong

to the idealists who think that my life is for show
and the vicious and twisted who will reap what they sow
to the people who think glory is only a word in a book
and the Olympians who will show us its there if you look

to the fascists who constantly bitch whine and moan
and the cash in hand migrants who polish our homes
to the man who left my reputation in tatters
in the end ill win is all that really matters

to the uncle who gave his nephew his first taste of white horse
and the looters who burned with no shame or remorse
to the upper working and the lower middle class
who think the sun still shines from their arse
to the Kensington rich and the vampires from Mayfair
who don't care about you, poverty or welfare

to the meat and two veg cafés that disappeared without a trace
and the corporate coffee bars that eventually took their place
to the artists who continually ask the question why
and the entertainers who laugh and who wont even try
to the late Mrs Bloomer who lost her sister in the blitz
and the wide boys from Romford who still call Germans Fritz

to Camden Amy and that bird from Tottenham hale
and the shops on the high street that are constantly on sale
to the landlord who thinks 3 rooms can fit 20
and the tight-fisted boss who fight you for every penny

to my narcissist friends who laughed when I fell
and the Jesus freeks who found salvation in a cell
to the kids who think it funny to carry a knife
and the others with guns who need to get a life

to the teachers who strive and really do care
and the charity shops that recycle and give us cheap wear
to the city stock traders who took the bloody piss
and the post modern yuppies working their way through the wine list
to the MPs who took our money to built moats
and the new labour vultures who told us porkies to get votes

to the poor who live in our manufactured hell
and the cockneys awakened by the sound of bow bell
to the ghost of George Orwell that never leaves us alone
and the shame of Jeffrey Archer who got bumped from his throne

to those we lost on the 7th of July
and the towers in New York that made us all cry
to those we lost in the fire in Kings Cross
to those who don't care and don't give a toss

to P.C. Keith Blakelock who never saw it coming
and the feud that followed and to this day still running
to suicide bridge and the jumpers who leap so high
and the drivers who speed up and quickly pass by

to the the mentally ill who search hard for the light
and the dregs of society who cant seem to get it right
to the Holloway and Pentonville girls and boys
and brasses and pimps in Soho with sex toys

to the pirate radio that gives us a beat
and the warehouse and clubs that let us move our feet
to the comedians and satirists who make us laugh and chuckle
and the nouveau rich who laugh when we buckle

to the criminals who steal and never seem to pay
and the righteous who's deeds never see the light of day
to the girls in my life who's love never lasted
and to the young man's advances that got viciously lambasted

to the Highbury faithful in who Wenger we trust
we need a new striker and this is a must
to the hustle and bustle of the Portobello road
and the doctors and nurses who carry the heavy load
to the Hornsey baths that gave me my first verruca
and the late night pool halls that let you play snooker

to the hanged man who stopped and forced me to see
and the world card that followed that came and set me free
to the lady in pink in yellow and sky blue
who governs our land and will forever stay true
to those who know the future is love
I raise my glass to all mentioned above.
The sun does not shine from any orifice of my human form
I am better at maths when I have a calculator

I was once told I was able to heal the sick
I was once told I was useless and wouldn't amount to much

I was once a devout Catholic
I was once an Atheist
I am now a Buddhist
next year I may be a  Hindu  

Sometimes I have very conservative fascist views
sometimes I am a little too liberal for my own good

I look better at night
I smell better with aftershave on

I cant stand disco music
I was once really into Abba

I once believed the moon landing was staged...I now know it was for real
I once believed the Kennedy assassination was a conspiracy... I now know Oswald acted alone

Sometimes I think modern art is amazing
Sometimes after looking at the pre Raphaelites I think modern art is crap

Sometimes I really like you
Sometimes I cant stand your guts.
Let us play with crayons and bright coloured pencils
glitter and glue
butterfly and heart stencils

we'll draw the day sky blue and bright sun
mummy and daddy too well have so much fun

let us imagine that the flowers are singing
multi coloured sweets that the rainbow is  bringing
let us eat sandwiches in the garden today
and wish that the summer is here to stay

let us hope tomorrow is just the same
and the clouds that pass by don't carry the rain

lets read a good book and get ready for bed
turn out the lights and count sheep in our head

we'll have dreams of giant and everlasting cakes
cherries and cream
sprinkles and flakes

let us awaken and tip toe down the stairs
carry our blankets and Benjamin bears

we'll eat loads of cereal with jam and toast
and then spend the day with the ones we love the most

let us give children the love they so need
and set aside anger and violence and greed

so let us go back to when times where such fun
and play in the fields of the everlasting sun.
I may not be the best artist in the world but i do owe it to my self to realize my potential, i'm bringing out the easel and paints and will resume painting this week. We all have a talent and if you enjoy it then its your duty to go all the way with it, the last two years for me have been tough but i feel like i have turned a corner and have missed painting enormously, like i said i owe it to myself  and hope to post new artwork here soon.  
Poem "If your going to try go all the way" Charles Bukowski
 

If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.
