there was an old farmer lo res

I made up a little poem for my fourth day of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days:

There was an old farmer who lived in a shoe.

He had so many debts he didn’t know what to do.

He kicked out the children and grabbed a gun.

As far as I know he’s still on the run!

The piece was inspired by a 19th century moralistic fable book by Dr. Heinrich Hoffman called Struwwelpeter (Slovenly Peter.) The old guy racing across the front with his musket is from that book.
