Red, blue, white and green,
Bottles filled with colours umpteen,
Started the young painter with these
And a board which was very clean!
Got to paint a
Tiger and squirrel magenta and green,
In a country where unicorns are seen.
Living in a stable,
Where horses do clean!
The young painter painted the
Horses in red and the unicorns in blue,
But never bothered to paint the dew!
Whenever I see that beautiful scene,
I remember now that
The artist is eighteen!
