Charade Of Protest

This is a portrait he has done
caught you unguarded
when you confounded
stared at nothingness
and a picture was painted
brushes and colour
coloration of your vanity
portrait by the artist
coloration of being incarcerated
in a room of sanity.
What behemoth?
what storm?
what passion?
Stamp your feet
to get out of claustrophobic zones
tell the artist, impressionist or otherwise
yours is simply a charade of protest.
