On a recent descent to the crypt of Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts (to view a Goya exhibit), a friend stopped at the first landing to use the restroom. A visitor with a magic marker had left the following lines in one of the stalls, after seeing the Goya display:
Vampires, chiggers, ticks & leeches
Instill an itch that no scratch reaches,
Succubi the sharpest quill can’t quell.
Traced in steel, Goya’s nightmare Hell!
