What if people were a box of crayons?
While some of us would be bright,
Others would be pretty dim.
But we'd all have the same shape.

That's not enough.

What if people were a bunch of pencils?
While some of us would be dull,
And others would be sharp:
We'd all look pretty similar.

Not enough though.

What if people were a pack of markers?
We'd all have the same shape--
Down to a science in fact--
But we'd all be different colours.

Still not enough.

What if people were ballpoint pens?
The kind with erasers at the end?
We'd all be exactly the same in every way;
We'd be able to fix our mistakes.

That's even worse.
