Damn Dead Artists Make Billions of Bucks 

Damn Dead Artists Make Billions of Bucks
(to all my artist friends who are still kicking alive)

Oh
Yeah
You’ve told me
You’ve have kept nurturing a wild dream
of soaring up
high
into unlimited sky
your name must be added
to the list of most famous artists of all time.

You wanna be better than any one of the fol-o’-wings:
Andy Warhol
the pope of Pop Art;
Pablo Picasso
the emperor of Art-kingdom;
Vincent van Gogh
the holy god of Starry Nights;
Leonardo da Vinci
the genius of the know-all-universe.

Except these above
you’ve
said
absolutely
NO to Michelangelo,
NO to Henri Matisse,
NO to Jackson Pollock,
And NO to all other well-known artists in the art world.

Ah,
my dear friends
don’t torture yourselves
by fooling your mind with this delusion.
I believe
artists
as
an emotional being
create something
mainly
for
the creative craving,
the need of expression
or (to some) for purely making a living.

It’s a bonus
if the world would recognize your work
also it would be nice
if you get some fame and get enough money
for
a decent living
food served on the table
monthly bills paid on time.

Otherwise, it is but the wildest dream as an artist
while you’re still
kicking
alive

Please remember the cruel fact in art
only
after their deaths
artists would make millions of bucks
and might become most famous of all time

You wanna join them?
go ahead
come to either the Louvre or MoMA
and hang yourselves on its walls
with a suicide note
that says
“I am a damned dead artist”.
