"Now, this is Tracy Emin's bed,"
The gallery curator said.
"Next door, you'll find a cow and calf,
Sawn (by Damien Hurst) in half.
These sell for bucket-loads of cash,
But me? I think they're utter trash."
(With thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales for the picture)

Utter rubbish... You can't call it art... Mad people with too much money buy such rubbish.ReplyDelete
Too true, Paula.Delete
Short, sweet and succinct - I like your take on this Magpie Tale.ReplyDelete
Love this. Reminds me of the contained insanity I saw when I first looked at the photo.ReplyDelete
Julie, it looked like any teenager's bedroom to me.Delete
I agree totally!ReplyDelete
Good for you, Lynette.Delete
A beautiful limerick but what is wrong with the bed?ReplyDelete
It looks perfectly serviceable to me.
Mine is much the same but without the ladies clothing and things. I'll take a photo if anyone is interested in fine art.
PS. I could extend the area of interest to include my kitchen and shower. My desk is little better.Delete
Oooh, go on, Adrian. Post those pictures. I dare you.Delete
Indeed, so much art these days is just trash! Nice take.ReplyDelete
But apparently people buy it, Bekkie!Delete
Thank you, Wayne.Delete
I once spent a lot of time in a Tracey Emin exhibition at The National (or was it The Tate?) in the hope of giving her a fair hearing in my mind. I gave her a very fair hearing. Verdict: she's having us on...big time.ReplyDelete
True, and Emin knows it. Laughing behind her hand at the tossers who give her awards for this sort of thing.Delete
GB, the sad thing is that she CAN draw. Just prefers to win prizes and fame with rubbish.Delete
Dear Tracey; where would we be without her!ReplyDelete
CM, trust me. We'd be just fine without her. But she needs US.Delete
If you or I put this in a public place we'd be arrested and charged with fly tipping.ReplyDelete
Emin's success with this display proves that "Art is what you can get away with."
Good point, Doc.Delete
The only talent Tracy etc seem to have is getting away with it.ReplyDelete
And she's not the only one, Patsy.Delete
Great poem. I couldn't agree more!ReplyDelete
You've said it all, Frances and so skilfully. Completely agree with you xReplyDelete
I'm glad you agree, Teresa.Delete
Love it, and agree with every word.ReplyDelete
Spot on, Frances! :)ReplyDelete
I agree with Frances.ReplyDelete
As so many people agree, it seems odd that this kind of 'art' persists, Cait.Delete
She made us look though, didn't she…ReplyDelete
Thank you, ds.Delete
I really got a kick out of this!ReplyDelete
Tell it like it is, sez I! LOLReplyDelete
Big grin on my face!.,ReplyDelete
Delighted to be able to help put it there, Helen!Delete
love this! It's interesting isn't it what some accept as art....cheers!ReplyDelete
Isn't it just, Kathe!Delete
Chipper and fun. Very niceReplyDelete
In total agreement with your words Frances. Excellent and witty - as usual.ReplyDelete
You're very kind, Anna!Delete
Quite a different take. Crisp. Loved reading it :)ReplyDelete
A foo and his money is easily parted!ReplyDelete
I meant "A FOOL AND HIS MONEY IS EASILY PARTED"ReplyDelete
I knew what you meant, Margaret! Thanks for the comment. And I agree.Delete
