Here is my poem about the Spring Garden painting which was stolen from the Singer Laren Museum in the Netherlands on Van Gogh’s birthday.
What strikes me about this is the calculated nastiness of:
1. Stealing the painting on the artist’s birthday.
2. Particularly as Van Gogh never achieved recognition during his lifetime which was tormented by poverty, mental health problems and ultimately suicide.
3. Timing the robbery to occur on the First day of Spring.
4. When the world is in the throes of a terrible virus which is killing thousands of people. What a calculated act.
Van Gogh’s birthday
Marred by show off robbers
An opportunist crime caper
‘Cause Vincent didn’t get his dues
Virus villains stealing
