Delusions of Grandeur

Teddy Roosevelt Bear & Napoleon Musk Oxen   both 8"x10"  Acrylic on paper

I wrote a little poem for the set titled Delusions of Grandeur. The poem and paintings appear in the new issue of Old Tat Magazine, a print magazine out of the United Kingdom.

Delusions of Grandeur
a poem written and illustrated by Gretchen Ellen Powers

Roosevelt was skeptical
And Bonaparte was sure,
That neither he nor Teddy 
Had had quite such hair before.

And wouldn't for our lessons
Make a more intriguing pair,
If Napoleon were an oxen
And old Roosevelt a bear?
