The Lyrics

I found two version of the OS. This is an amalgamated parody. I make no claims for historical, cultural, pictorial, philosophical, grammatical, or any other accuracy of an of these painting parodies.
In Whistler's whites-few work,
He focuses almost entirely on black and on gray.
His mum sits in a room;
Her face is long, dress like sarong.
How long'd he make her stay?

The mood seems one of doom,
Gloom suffusing the room,
And mom looks kind of gruff.
It sits in the Musée d'Orsay,
Next to the Seine's slight spume.

Today, this Whistler work
Is famous art; short name's just part
Of the titular work.*

*Arrangement in Grey and Black: The Artist's Mother

I don't know why, but "It sits in the Musée d'Orsay, Next to the Seine's slight spume" made me laugh out loud. Or as Whistler's mother said when she finally was allowed to stand up..."oy, my hemmeroids!"
