Magpie Tales Oh La La!!

Painting by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec


There once was a gal from France
Who refused to wear underpants
As she danced with abandon
The famous dance Can-Can
Henri was totally entranced!

That gal was very popular I'm guessing. Too cute.

Have a terrific day. ☺

You've created a fun ditty and a perfect match for this painting.

The guy on siting on the stool will be entranced, too. Nice limerick.
