(“I am an artist and not a politician. Once the Polish question is settled, I want to end my life as an artist,” told Adolf Hitler to the British ambassador Neville Henderson in 1939, before the outbreak of World War II. Adolf Hitler’s aspiration to become a professional artist was shattered when he was twice rejected by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.)

The painting on the canvass
Remarkable on its own right
Colorful and detailed
To an admirer’s eye,
Had the gift of a natural talent
Of a determined upcoming artist
Was appreciated in an epoch of life
Where destinies were to diverge,
The world would have known
An astounding painter,
Than a despised despot
Of lost aspirations.
