Guy covers skull in diamonds…calls it art

June 13, 2007

Damien Hirst’s “For the love of God,” photo courtesy of the NYTimes

Just how much would you pay to own
A diamond encrusted head bone?
Mr. Damien Hirst
Says his art’s not the worst
It’s not from Sierra Leone

If one hundred million is paid
For the priciest art ever made
It’s hard not to brood
When so many lack food
What a farce to buy diamonds, not aid

    I covered that stuff for Philly Weekly… you know, without the sensitivity to the needs of hungry people.
