The missing pen

I’ve done it again!
I’ve lost me pen!
I don't know how,
I don't know when?

Perhaps He'll show,
Perhaps He's gone,
Perhaps he's back where he belongs?

"Where does he belong?" I hear you cry,
"A Magical pencil case in the sky?"

Well he won't come back,
I know this now,
He's hiding away with his stationary pals.
Compass and Pencil, Protractor and Pencil,
Having tea with the Sharpener and I tell you, He's Mental!

So, if you ever lose a pen,
Don't expect to see it again,
He's probably living with Biro, his partner,
It's that, or he's been eaten by Sharpener!

I have always been passionate about writing. Words can be beautiful, powerful, they may make us laugh, or perhaps weep. Words can make sense of our inner beings; or like me, they may convey a warped sense of humor!, Im an accredited Counsellor; currently working with traumatized young people; obtaining my MA in Counselling in Australia; a country where I live and work., Narratives are important in my work with young people, and I often find poetry to be an excellent medium from which to explore our inner worlds and feelings. Of course, poetry can also make us laugh; something of equal importance :)
