Portrait of yourself

#Napowrimo

with a nod to Matt @ Writeclub for the prompt!

It’s a funny thing

the colours seem right

but your eyes seem bulgy

and your nose sits like a pyramid

in the centre of your face

shredded wheat beard

to go with shredded wheat hair

and a grin like a Cheshire cat

The artist looks on, smiling

Do you like it ?, he asks

and you say ‘yes’

as its held to the refridgerator

aloft with a magnet – in the kitchen
