April 2016 Poem A Day #15 In The Gallery

For this prompt a set of words were given, an instructions were to pick four to use in the poem:
flat ring lavish gaudy vessel paper tooth blacklist 

In the Gallery

the statue wore a flat gold ring of gaudy teeth
around its marble neck, a lavish emblem
of artistic excess or social extreme
each tooth covered in scrimshaw
ceremonial pictures
for a biting afternoon
A critic in the paper said
the show should be blacklisted
or delisted or at the least recycled.
No one
read the review.
