this is for a cute competition y'all.

you are a bucket,
an unseeing unfeeling unknowing thing,
your uses are limited,
because you can't think,

you sit but you don't,
because buckets simply, 
do not sit but are placed,
i assume you'd agree,

you cannot wonder,
your thoughts couldn't be,
inanimate things don't dream

you are a bucket, 
and i believe,
your uses are limited,
because you can't think,

    I love it! A simple but thoughtful poem, speculating but in a factual, this-is-how-it-is tone, and I think that really adds to the piece. However, on the very last line there's a comma instead of a period? Was it cut off, or is it just a typo? Anyway, great work and thanks for contributing to the prompt!
