Sir F. Chook, Inventor of Leopard Oil

Likeness captured upon a daguerrotype machine in Japan, July 1891


Wherein the Author reflects upon certain topical & personal issues of the Day.

Joseph Beuys was a medical student

Penned upon the 4th of May, 2006

In wartime Krefeld,
Made to join the Luftwaffe,
And he was shot down
Over the Soviet Union.
He was rescued by Crimean Tartars
(who he might have imagined.)
He survived with their help,
Wrapped in lard and felt.
This unlikely beginning
Gave him symbols of healing
And he became a conceptual artist
And helped found the Greens Party.
