The masterpiece sat on the wall
a jigsaw of a painting 8 x 10 ” Tall
triangular pieces of plastic in a frame
copying a master – the artist’s aim
But along comes a little lass – proper and sweet
who notices a space in the jigsaw so neat.
The artist he laughs out – that’s now’t out of place
till a security man points out his disgrace
For there on the jigsaw – is an obvious space
and of piece that’s missing – there is no trace
the staff searched the galleries, the stairwells and halls
but of jigsaw piece – there’s nothing at all
But without it – the artist – doesn’t get all the cash
so round all exhibits – he begins to dash
If only he thought to look under his foot
the missing jigsaw piece – is stuck under his boot!
