When Art Becomes Shark-bait

When strong waves lap down,
crashing its foundation,
the frail walls will not endure.
Pots & pans & shoes will float,
taken by surge of a great, salt, sea,
with merciless greed, including the art,
displayed & destroyed, temporarily.
until it becomes flotsam,
which will not interest sharks,
because, though well-intended,
& perhaps in good taste,
The Last Post,
will NOT taste good.
