Is art a thing you can taste, smell, or touch
Rated one to ten and pinned on a chart
Can it be mastered, learned, or even judged
Is art seen with our eyes or by our hearts

Is it measured in inches and on graphs
By the popularity that it brings
Can a pink painted tightroping giraffe
Compare to a song, dance, or woodcarving

Is quality or amount of time spent
More important than effort for a score
Should it be left up to the audience
Or to the masterpiece's creator

Based on colors, message, or usefulness
How do we even know when it's finished

The author's comments:
I was pondering what exactly art is in my art class at school, and this is what I came up with.
