Hi guys! I hope you guys can give this poem I did for an English project, a quick read, and give some feedback.


Modern Art

These new art forms, which they call contemporary,
They're weird, they're unusual, and they're unordinary.
For those skeptics, unconvinced, who don't believe,
I'll show you examples, read, and you'll see.

"A Russian man nails scrotum to rock hard floor",
That's an "Artistic protest", in name of the poor.
A small child can slap paint on a whiteboard,
After that, there's nothing their family can't afford.
Draw a single line, and it'll be considered rare,
And in no time, they become a millionaire.
Someone can take a photo of the Rhine river,
Sell it, and say goodbye to mortgage forever.

Basically, I think art should take a step back,
There's too much that these new trends lack.
Now, if I jumbled up words of random literature,
Would I also become a contemporary art master?

*The 4th stanza actually exists; it's blank to emphasize my proficiency in minimalism  Grin


Thank you very much for your time!!

 Grin
I laughed but I'm no poetry expert so I can't offer any feedback in that sense.

Perhaps this might give you some inspiration;

I suppose it's a good thing if you laughed  Wink

And I've never heard of those two people before, but it was quite hilarious actually, so thanks for showing me that!
