American Gothic Mice
A Poem by S. David

Still in a world
Of "what if"
A world of
There is dignity
It was across
A dimension rift
In a replica
By rodent ilk
As the simian branch
Never developed
A farmer and
His daughter
Posed for their picture

"American Gothic"
by Grant Wood1891-1942
Wood's best known work is his 1930 painting American Gothic, one of the most familiar images in 20th century American art. The painting was first exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago where it can still be found today. Today, the painting is often parodied in pop culture, and remains one of the most notable examples of American Regionalism.
