Too sad to hang on a wall but one gets drawn in to examine the details.

Don't understand the title though . . . ?

Not really sad but undecided. According to my Dictionary, the phrase was originally to go shill-I shall-I or, to stand at shill-I shall-I. I think he captures my mood really well (lol).
