Cheap Pencils

By: hal99

I really dislike those pencils

The ones that don't sharpen

Quite right. They have that

Cool cheap plastic d├ęcor that

Causes my unfortunate plight.

You sharpen it, hopeful that

It will probably turn

out great, but along

Comes the part of this process

That I really kind of hate.

The plastic comes off the

Pencil, leaving it quite plain

And when the wood comes

Above the lead, it is such a

Rueful pain. You can try to

Make it better, by sharpening

It some more, but the cheap

Wood pokes you in the hand

Making it very sore. So you tell

Yourself to throw it away until

You feel cheap too. But no one

Likes cheap pencils, I don't

How about you?
