My Hide and Seek Pencil
Even tho’ I keep a pencil by
Ready to use in case of need
I find that I should have had its clone
Since a readied pencil is a
Ring Ring Hello! Yes I’ll get a
Oh! Where is it? Oh Where?
I start becoming apprehensial.
It’s not here! It’s not there!
Although it has a specific place
And should remain in its zone
That does not seem to be the case.
It seems hidden from the phone.
Oh! There on the floor,
So obviously existential, Is the frustrating chore,
My Hide and Seek pencil.
