My Mechanical Pencil

To catch me up to the most recent poem, here's a nice little one about my desire for a really nice mechanical pencil... I have since bought one that is quite good, but still not up to the standard I was hoping.

MY MECHANICAL PENCIL

I have a mechanical pencil.
It's a pretty decent one
with the button on the side
to thrust out more lead.

It's by far not just
some cheap-ass pencil
you get in packs of ten,
but I really want
a fancy, expensive pencil.

WalMart only carries
crappy ones.

Maybe I can find one online.

It's not really
something I need,
but I really want one.

Ah, the simple things in life
that make us happy.
