The degeneration of church art

                                            From the heights of Catholic religiosity

                                            To the depths of Protestant secularity

                                            Was paralleled by the elevation of state art

                                            From the depths of Romantic secularity

                                            To the heights of Classical light artistry.

                                            By contrast to painting, light art most definitely

                                            Signifies a 'fall', as from wavicle realism

                                            To particle materialism, but one significant of

                                            A progression from atoms to electrons,

                                            And thus commensurate with the proletariat

                                            Rather than the bourgeoisie.
