Payton the Painter by Kenn Nesbitt

Payton is a painter.
She’s the speedy painting queen.
She paints her pictures quicker
than the world has ever seen.

She splashes paint so rapidly,
her motion is a blur.
As artists go, there’s no one else
who’s quite as fast as her.

She’s fond of painting animals,
and plants, and people too.
She’ll often paint a landscape
or a lovely sunset view.

She’ll tell you, “This one is a cat,
and this one is a house,
and this one is a rocket ship,
and this one is a mouse.”

It’s hard to tell for certain, though.
They all just look like slop.
She doesn’t paint them with a brush.
She paints them with a mop.
