    /// Eduardo hates posing; it’s gross.

    His expression is glum and morose.

    He is dressed up in pomp

    near a dank fetid swamp.

    If they’d let him, he’d say, “Adios!”

    Robert De Niro used this image as an inspiration for his role in Taxi Driver. “Are you talking to me?”

    /// Eddie Munster, (he claims), but bleached blond.

    Well, if so, changes went way beyond

    the light tint of his hair.

    There’s no widow’s peak there!

    Were his eyebrows plucked? Steve… you’ve been conned.

    He often dressed and posed this way to attract bullies and prove his toughness. “One day,” he thought, “they’ll all fear the name ‘Chuck Norris’.”

    You can tell by his gloomy expression/

    That he isn’t enjoying this session/

    In fact he is p1$$ed/

    But his parents insist/

    (He swears he won’t go to confession.)///

    Now he’s standing beside a butte/

    By the sea in a three piece suit/

    It makes no sense at all/

    To be dressed for a ball-/

    But he is – because they think it’s cute.///

    When his parents are old and gray/

    He swears they are going to pay:/

    He’s seething in silence/

    As he contemplates violence-/

    But will that really happen? No way.

    Nobody liked the chubby kid in knickers. That’s why he became a lawyer.

    Portrait of Eduardo Lahitte Uribelarrea

    Paste (including the quote marks) 

    "Category:Portrait paintings in Argentina" Wikimedia 

    (syntax supported by the Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, and Ecosia search engines) in the browser address bar (or search for it using one of those search engines) and choose the first Category: found and once there find the text string Lahitte, and click its link for info and links that point to more info (perhaps best viewed using Google Chrome, which can translate most webpages if necessary) about this painting.

     

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by (Ctrl- or right-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #3182 (September 5, 2023) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu (even larger, if you trim what’s after .png from the URL). I have added a comment there pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. Only work by him used here so far.

    his parents kept him in boy clothes, but he wanted to be a girl, all those frilly things to wear.

    Although the comments may elicit snickers, of the lad’s smile there is nary a flicker, he wanted to ride, with that boat on the tide, but was refused because of his knickers.

    He seems to have more of a Pugsley Addams vibe.
