The firefly in flight aesthetically speaking
took practice at night when his art was peaking.
His angular movements suggested a Cubist ballet
only to be interrupted by the critique of day!
Melodies lifted from high above
courtesy of birds who were in love.
Chopin and Strauss wanted something new
and turned to nature for their cue.
The view is obstructed and as you can tell
the garbage next door is starting to smell.
Once it was heaven but now it's hell.
Monet's garden is not doing well!
The Inertia ballet had its woes.
The dancers neglected to use their toes
as the staid choreography took a backseat
with a stationary protest of moving feet.
Little Dora improvises on a plastic flute
but cousin Ralphie took another route.
He bangs a spoon and clears his throat.
Jazz babies always bend that note!
