my pen is like a
frightened octopus
the way it shoots its ink.

it will lead my horse to water
but it will not be my shrink.

I always liked 'You can lead a whore to culture but you can't make her think'. Not that it has anything to do with your poem, but I thought you might appreciate it.
My pen actually is my shrink...I can't afford a real one...but by goodness, I'm in need.
I'd sooner trust my pen over another person's opinion.. But then again, my pen and I have an understanding... This is a clever, witty piece..well done. Amberlee
well so much for the Papermate brand. But how true, how true...
