This is a redundant post, since I posted these lyrics to frameworks
in April 2005.

But, what the hell.

"Van Gogh's Poem"
by Tuli Kupferberg

When Van Gogh was alive
He sold only two of his paintings for less than $100

In Amsterdam
There is a museum
Five stories high to house his works
Built at a cost of over one million dollars

When he heard of this
Van Gogh spun in his grave very fast
Spattering the tomb with brilliant orange delph
and Japanese colors

Tomorrow they're selling his tomb for a billion guilders flat!

from Tuli & Friends (the LP version, not the CD re-release of two
Shimmy Disc, 1989
