Inspired by an upside-down painting in Prado Lounge Café Bar (see image – artist unknown).
Upside-down, a dish mop hangs
Throttled, death-like by longing pangs.
Waitress, I ask, how can this be?
A weary waiter, he wanted free.
The tips he sought, they could not be!
We tipped him up, and shook him
Hence, this portrait wears his frown.
