“ We don’t need an art Mausoleum
For the worship of dead artwork
we need living factories of human spirit”
Who was it that said that?
Maybe it was Valdimir Mayakovski
in a moment of revolutionary heat.
He didn’t know then
his words now would resemble
and sat on his shoulder
and let him
of a new beginnings.
Yet he faded so quick
so took his own life
it seems his ideas, just like his soul,
simply wander and became under control.
It’s all so long ago that Quote of Hope
Today it comes in a musical note.
By them that get inspired on dope.
And that painted art?
What the fuck is that?
No one dares to say today
or even have an opinion – no way.
But It’s Flat.
and well Dumbed down.
And it lives on the internet all alone
like the soul of poor Valdimir.
Revolution – Change – Begin Again
Think Outside the Box – make a new start
or shall art be locked in chains again?
Or even worse still, be only seen in a virtual shopping Mart?
“We don’t need a Modern Art Mausoleum
to worship the living Stars of Art
All we need is Heart 2 Art
who was it that said that?
Oh yea, I forgot…it was me in 1983.”
