Braggarts Beware

Braggarts beware of open containers of paint
on newly bathed bodies-not for the faint

of heart, seeing full arms, torso, and head.
Slathered in less than sixty seconds in red

tempera, a thick chalk like paste.
Marcel didn't have a minute to waste

to decide what to color on when the easel is bare.
He walks into the room, smiling so wide as we stare.

Look Mommy! I paint my body all by myself.
Announces one very red and curly haired elf.
