Poetry Corner: Warhol's Campbell Soup

January 25, 2016

What a crazy thing to paint.

A Campbell's soup can,

the logic is so faint.

 

So why wasted the man,

his talents of artistic splendor

on painting a soup can, I wonder?

 

It's not even the colors I'm used to.

The style is not all that grand.

The work is good, it's true,

The man's got a leg to stand.

 

But why paint a soup can?

   Warhol's Campbell's Soup Can

 

 

 

This was a writing exercise, and you can guess what it was. Looking at art and writing the poetry it inspired. For some of these I am quite inspired, but Andy Warhol (I know, I must be an uncultured heathen!!) never inspired me to do more than ask a lot of questions. Questions like "How is that not copyright infringement? Who would pay for "art" like this? And the ever prevalent thought: What combination of drugs inspired this madness?"

 

But it was for high school creative writing.

 

What do you think of Andy Warhol's work? Leave a note in the comments below.

 

Until next time,
