poem: sharp pencil

sharp pencil

It was a very long day
and i have a sharp pencil

i want to stick it in my pupil
and maybe poke my eye out

just like i was told not to do
when i used pencils all the time

just to see who will remain my friend
after the truth comes out

about how stupid i am
for doing stupid things

. . . it was a very long day
and i have a sharp pencil.
