The Art of Asking

A statue spoke to me and said,
“Make art because you love it so,
Because without, you would be dead.
Give it for free, to those you know.

Also to those you don’t, my friend.”
Wise words she spoke to me that day,
“Give art away, your heart defend.
Just ask for it, and they will pay.”


Prompted phrase was “the art of asking”
Requester was Lana Phillips
Request method was Mass Mosaic.
Author is Sean Prunka

Author notes: A fitting prompt, since the book by the same name by Amanda Palmer was the primary reason for creating the tile on Mass Mosaic in the first place. This poem is in simple iambic tetrameter with an ABAB rhyme scheme.
