Diego Rivera, Man at the Crossroads
I paint what I paint, I paint what I see,
I paint what I think, said Rivera [...]
I'll take out a couple of people drinkin'
And put in a picture of Abraham Lincoln; [...]
But the head of Lenin has got to stay!
It's no good taste in a man like me,
Said John D's grandson, Nelson. [...]
For this, as you know, is a public hall.
And people want doves, or a tree in fall,
And tho your art I dislike to hamper,
I owe a little to God and Gramper.
And after all,
It's my wall…
We'll see if it is, said Rivera.
