A mask on the wall

devil mask
Mask on the bathroom wall of artist Anado McLauchlin, La Cieneguita, Guanajuato, México

A mask on the wall of the bath
Represents such unholy wrath
That bathers do quake,
And shiver and shake,
While viewing the mask in the bath.

  1. Mind you he looks fairly benign compared with some!

  2. It does look like a portal from somewhere, wow: “unholy wrath”!

  3. Luv it; maybe if i were there in the bathroom i too would quiver and shake, but above your poem, i caught myself thinking – Oh how cute : matching ears and tongue


    much love…

  4. Ouch! Quite an angry, frowning color for a wall complemented by the mask, truly spelling ‘unholy wrath’. Well captured 🙂

  5. Oh dear! I think I’d just use his horns for a towel rack. That should take care of him nicely!

  6. Masks are scary to me.

  7. hypercryptical

    I love baths but reckon I would take few if he was hanging on my wall!
    Anna :o]

  8. Yikes, an orange wall and a scary mask – not the most restful conditions, lol. The horns would be a great place to hang the towel, though!

  9. Who’s idea was that?

  10. lol wouldn’t like to be a bather in there indeed Good one

  11. Shouldn’t be sharing the bathroom with it. Great Limerick MMT!


  12. Ha, that would definitely freak me out!
