    The Painting on the Wall

    “This painting makes me nauseous.”
    That’s what my sister said.
    “I don’t know why an apple tree
    would grow a loaf of bread!
    The bumblebees are upside down.
    The birds are inside out.
    I wish you never bought this thing
    It makes me SCREAM and SHOUT!”

    I said, “You must be joking.
    This painting makes me laugh.
    I love the flying panda
    and the seven-inch giraffe.
    The diamonds on the apple tree
    are happy as can be.
    They sparkle like a blinding sun
    reflecting on the sea.”

    It’s funny how the sisters
    see the painting on the wall.
    The older one adores it,
    but the other— NOT AT ALL!
    One hundred million people
    may have different points of view,
    but the only one that matters
    is the voice inside of you.
