The Running Pencil

I need you
Where did you go
I am about to take a test
NO NO NO said the pencil
You sharpen me too much
And use up my eraser
Look at it
It’s almost gone
Nope you are not going to get me
Gotta run
Now what am I going to take the test with

See look at you
You is a whole pencil who has no eraser
That’s why she threw you away
We have to do something about this
They make mistakes and then use our bottoms like trash
Next time they better use a pen!
