Dem Bones, Dem Bones 2
I’m not gonna enter this contest, because a) I entered that last one twice, and 2) I wouldn’t stand a chance! But it happens that I did a bones drawing recently, so I’ll show you guys. It even has a poem:
Riding home with the bones
of the Elephant Man
On a jaunt that took us overland
A meadow of daisies exalting the sun
set the scene where
the dastardly doing was done.
It wasn’t what I wanted.
A pleasant ride would do.
But a melody blew o’er the dale
The notes were all askew!
It’s bad enough the wistful maiden
couldn’t play the thing.
But why’d she have to make it worse?
Who told her she could sing?
It seems Unicorns are sensitive
To sounds they don’t hear daily.
He lowered his head,
Charged at her,
And skewered her ukelele.
I’ve just been reading Jeff Noon’s Nymphomation, so I fully expected to see stuff made from dominoes. :P
Reminds me of Scott Campbell’s latest exhibit with the laser cut money, one of which is a skull like this.
Shouldn’t that be “one bone”, as Gary Vaynerchuk likes to say at Wine Library?
Well, that about wraps it up for the economy of the USA.
