Bad Art


I set off a stink bomb
At the art opening of bad art.
It was funny how everyone started

    Hahaha! Loved this... You speak as so many feel but with a great angle.. wondering if it was the Tate modern? As banksy stencilled on the steps outside (mind the crap) . Not all is. But to a layman such as I much is more about who you know than what you achieve. (To me)

    Saved this as it gave me such funny visions. Love the art warriors mind. Tyvm. (Report) Reply

    i think this is better as a writing that is not poetry. poetry is suposed 2 b symestrical, graceful and beautiful. nice story but not 4 poetry. (Report) Reply

    Bad Art, bad smell, . well you achieved that, Shame you didnot get pictures of the faces suffering. They would go well framed in the gallery. (Report) Reply

    I like this quite a lot, Michael. Puncturing the illusions of aesthetes is sorta fun, eh? You even had a 'real world' motive behind your guerrilla action. The poem shows that you have an admirably light touch with humor, is well controlled and literate - all excellent qualities.

    Very amusing indeed. You laerly have strong opinions, and express them very wittily.
