An Artistic Endeavour

Lancelot Mossback and Morpheus Lampoon
aka: John Smith and Jane Doe,
the two self proclaimed Nordic nomadic imagists,
who along with their cohorts from
the Autumn Royal Flush Echelon of surrealist sculptors; 
founded the Counter Culture Insurgency of Art,
based on an abandoned cattle ranch named
Great Barrier Reap, in the wilderness
  just east of Omaha.

Recognizing their non-compliance with the shifting
social order and public morals,
they chose a life of self imposed exile
on this compound, where they are free
to live off the land and live on the edge,
as an escape from an America infested
with the inherited heroism emanating in adamant
adoration of a counterfeit Hemingway half-note.

These two long-lost hotshots of art recently unveiled
their latest work titled:
           Several Yetis Entering Tibet.
A thirty foot tall edifice made of old automobile tires,
discarded two by fours and plywood planks
covered with shards and shreds of furniture upholstery
and fabrics, artifacts recycled from the local landfill.

They plan to set the sculpture ablaze in a ceremony
they call a bonfire of insanities,
to rekindle their fame and whose effervescence
of decadence and desolation released
in wafting smoke and ash,
will leave a lingering impact that impales impunity
and symbolize the suicidal tendencies
endemic in modern society.
