Postmodern Shark Attack

Damien Hirst
Nearly burst
Trying to out-camp
Marcel Duchamp.

To top Marcel's conceptual urinal
Damien worked in an air force terminal.
Eventually something fishy did fit
For the iconoclastic, ditsy  Brit.

Executing his fame-obsessed wish
In formaldehyde he dipped a fish
The resultant preserved postmodern shark
Enclosed in glass,  made its mark.

Bought by a hedge fund guy... funny -
Only he could afford the money
No shrieks of envy pass my lips
I'd  rather have my fish with chips.


  1. Wow! I see you as dangerously wonderful - never knowing what you will do next.

  2. I am not sure I can go into the mens room after reading this.
