Today we have visited The Hepworth in Wakefield. We love going to modern art galleries. However we still look at some of the exhibits with a bemused look. Art A stack of arbitrary bricks A messy unmade bed Designless splashes of paint Wood randomly sculpted Stone fashioned indiscriminately What makes this art? Art delivers A vision,an impression, a fashion or imitation Art emotes Affection, reflection, inspiration, or appreciation Art evokes Polarisation, rejection, indignation and condemnation Art is art if it creates a reaction.

I am not very good at reading a newspaper, so I thought I would write a poem to summarise today’s news captured in The Mail on Sunday. I thought it might help me be more engaged. And here’s the news...
