Magpie 180


Our Sidney believes himself cursed,
And he's always expected the worst.
So he quite understands
Now his dismembered hands
Have won prizes for Damien Hirst.

(With thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales for the picture)

  5. Great! Except that drawing is by M.C. Escher, not Damien Hirst.

    I'm confused. Please explain what you mean...

    1. Damien Hirst is an English artist who specialises in the ...er...unusual. Pickled cows with sawn-in-half calves spring to mind. If you haven't heard of him, then this limerick is even more silly than it seems!
