Here’s a new year ditty on the big picture, for every adult who thinks he/she can’t draw

[If you’ve ever wondered whether you can or should draw, here’s the big picture. With this ditty, we’re celebrating a new year of vision fulfilled, with you!]

you think you can write but doubt you can draw
yet as a child you doodled round the hall
now smart machines draw, leaving you in awe
then you wonder, need i, at all?

maybe, just maybe, drawing naively makes you happy
maybe, just maybe, with beautiful simplicity
the more we draw together, even imperfectly
we create our vision, in solidarity

when we see
shall have the
for making the big picture
