Hilma AF Klimt only painted 
In sunglasses, even at night
If not she apparently fainted 
Since her paint was too bright

Boris Lurie never took any car
With even numbered plates
And said he only smoked cigars 
To disassociate socially from Yeats

Ai Wei Wei only wears his wristwatch
On Wednesdays. He might be 
Trying to send us some sort of message
