Some Pinky pencils live longer
as they remain hidden in the dusty
pockets of blazers
that no longer fit.
Then there are unconcerned
ones that idle in a pen pot
and their only job is to make
managers look busy.
Some hibernate on dressing tables,
others remain in locked
compass boxes & some lethargically
scratch away on sketchbooks—
no wonder the world needs
so much coffee!
