Who was the rival   

who dared to change   

what was created   

by a perfect man   


Who dared to invade   

the perfect lines   

and mark his own   

awkward designs   


Who dared to alter   

the painted images   

of one who was   

very religious   


Who dared to claim   

to be his equal   

without knowing   

the artistic secrets   


Who dared to challenge   

and ruin his name   

It had to be the rival   

with no brain 

with no name 

with no shame
