A Poem about Frida Kahlo

With apologies to Ogden Nash

The Mexican,
The Mexican!
Her eyes are mauve and hexagon!
Her brow is thick and mono-ish!
Her voice is hoarse and Bono-ish!
She had a naïve folk art style,
And gender,
Class, race,
Fantasy!
And married Diego Rivera,
Divorced,
Remarried,
Suicide?
