Have fun with my first attempt at a ballad... It's rather stupid, but I was suffering from writer's block.

The Ballad of a Pencil With No Eraser

October 24, 2020

FREE WRITING

5
The saddest tale that’s e’er been told
Is that of pencil Sharp
He wrote so dark, so brave and bold
The critics on did harp

Disaster struck one fateful day
As Sharp wrote down a line
His pink eraser wore away
So marring Sharp’s design

Now Sharp decays in health and mind
His purpose now so dull
And as Sharp fails, he falls behind
And publishers are full

No time have they for useless Sharp
A point without an end
So on and on the critics carp
About his latest penned

To greatness go the other pens
And those whose use goes on
To write of mountains and of glens
For Sharp all hope is gone
So, this is kind of stupid, but my cousin and I had the idea of writing a poem about a pencil that didn't have an eraser, so this was what came out...

    Replying: Hmm, that's interesting. I hate drawing hands and feet--it's so hard for me! I can't draw guys that well either, but girls I can draw; I don't know why. Is there a certain genre you like to draw most, of thing you enjoy drawing?
