If only Picasso had podcast
from a smartphone,
on his palette,
Guernica might have had more impact.
Women and children might have brought Franco down.
Picasso might have screamed
“The Luftwaffe made paint cling like barnacles to this bloody canvas”.
Le noir, blanc et gris
Das schwarz, weiss und grau
The black, white and grey
The bull and the horse
These may be episodes from Season One,
recorded in a Paris studio.
As it was, Pablo did the best he could,
to spread his message
like a virus pulling subscribers,
seeping into the ears of a few strangers who watched him work.
If only Picasso had podcast,
and shared his sweat on Twitter,
his voice would have gone viral,
Guernica would be alive
wherever massacres matter.
