Sorry, but my distinct impression is–
We already have enough abstract expressionists.
There’s no use spelunking in artistic caverns
For the type once rife at the Cedar Tavern.
I mean, I think if you’ve seen one Rothko
you’ve pretty much seen them all, by gothko.
And as for someone overshadowed by Pollock
It’s a bit late for me to wax hyperbolic.
The problem as I see it with this artistic school
is its foundation was laid by breaking all rules.
Once they’d been shattered into little fragments
There’s no point to re-smashing in different pigments.
There may be an AbEx I somehow missed out on,
if so, I’ll never know that sleeper.
I just wish I’d bought the well-known Old Masters
when their exorbitant prices were cheaper.
