    For King Gustav the third (quite a prig), / the nude model selection they’d rig. / Here, the youth Gustav chose / he first sees with no clothes. / “I don’t get it— his hands are so big!

    The only problem with Clyde/ (aside from the length of his…“stride”)/ is the matter of seating/ at the annual meeting/ for he feels he has nothing to hide../// He is never offered the Chair/ though his qualifications compare/ with the best candidates/ because everyone hates/ to take second to Clyde’s derriere./// He continues to seek the position/ but his dream will not come to fruition/ He will never (we swear !/ take the Chairperson’s chair/ for we all hate his naked ambition !

    Near the doorway through which he’d been led, / four nude statues filled Oskar with dread. / That pale, petrified crew— / had he known one or two? / Then they showed him the snake-coiffured head…

    Arts Academy folks went along / when the King brought with him a great throng. / The shy model’s not proud / to be viewed by a crowd. / And they’re all thinking, “It won’t be long.”

    In early cases of alien abduction, the flying saucers only managed to upload clothing, leaving behind a perplexed nude victim. Lady Godiva was another instance of this.

    When they said, “Now you take off your clothes,” / I said, “Well, all right, I suppose.” / But in fact, I’d have sooner / Sat down at a computer / Than show all these guys my, er, nose.

    When they told him to take off his clothes/ a number of questions arose / like “do you think he lifts ?”/ “are those ‘natural’ gifts ?”/ and “could we find a more dignified pose ?”

    Revised version: Scattered among the artists are the last few six-year-olds allowed to sketch nudes before they were prohibited (due to a complete misunderstanding of what constitutes “child pornography.”)

    Medusa lived mostly alone/ for her visage turned people to stone./ Still, a few times a year/ she would briefly appear/ as the orchestra’s lead trombone./// At those times, when the audience fled/ at the sight of the snakes on her head/ the critic’s agreed/ she should switch to the reed/ but she turned to the tuba instead../// She still turned people to stone/ but the critics admired her tone / which is poor consolation/ for petrification/ so she turned to the saxophone.///But her serpents objected to that/ for they noticed she played some notes flat../so she found a solution/ to this damned substitution/ but she’s keeping it under her hat….

    After the lady was put in jail for attempting to attend the all male diversity committee meeting; people thought it was all over, and could be forgotten.

    But … NO!!!

    Now, you had to prove that you were a male before attending the meeting.

    The nude model had never been sadder, / for the King could not be any madder. / Gustav’s close-up inspection / (and a recent infection) / made the lad lose control of his bladder.
