Penny Parker’s pencil
is a wonder to behold.
It’s glorious and radiant.
It’s shimmering and gold.

We’re not sure where she got it.
It may be the only one.
It glitters like a crystal.
and it sparkles like the sun.

It’s lined with glowing LEDs
of purple, blue and pink,
and every time she doodles
all the lights begin to blink.

It’s multicolored patterns
are exquisite and extreme,
eliciting such “ooh’s” and “aah’s”
like something from a dream.

Yes, Penny Parker’s pencil
is an undisputed “10.”
But, even more incredible,
you ought to see her pen!
