# What is the piece of art?

64 views

Art is to be appreciated from afar, rarely touched, and certainly never altered from the artist's original vision. One would never pencil in eyebrows on the Mona Lisa or dare to bolt mannequin arms to the Venus de Milo.

Yet, despite all this, there is a well-known piece of art that has been blatantly defaced. What is even stranger is that the offending defacer, though he meant to do his nasty work, did not WANT to. His identity was known, yet he was never arrested and never punished. Quite the opposite, his defacement was encouraged by the highest of powers in his day.

A fuzzy annoyance, am I?
I just wanted a piece of the pie
But when I took a peek
You saw me and shrieked
And jumped from the ground to the sky.

You are larger than me
And still, from me, you flee
Am I really so foul
That you holler and howl
And run to get away from me?

Is it my little pink nose
Or my tail, which firmly grows?
Is it my fur
That causes the stir
Or the fact that I feed on compost?

You try to catch me with cheese
Using it as a mere tease
But when I snatch the stack
A spring goes, "WHACK!"
But I escape with expertise.

What am I?
