Rotten History3 (Guernica)

Picasso's painting "Guernica" resounds across the ages,
etching an aerial outrage across World history's pages,
a bombing resurrected with overt dismembered parts
so real in its depictions that an abstruseness departs.
Resemblances of tragic victims are graphically depicted,
a war crime of a brutal State via this genius convicted,
monochrome stark disembodied heads of bull and horse
colour darkly a bloody act by the hands of Fascist force.
A culture shock thumped hard into soft belly of our Art,
sent asprawling to canvas knocked out in mind and heart.

I love the way you use art to mention art, Frank. Whether you're subject is a painting, a sculpture, a movie, or even another literary work, these poems are originals in their own right. For reference, here's the link on the painting: Guernica.
