An unusual pencil case

An unusual pencil case

By May Kwek

If you saw me in school
You would have thought me dreadfully poor
Because my writing tools
Are in a ziplock bag I fear

Yes, that's right
A ziplock bag
Made of clear plastic
And as fat as a sack

But the truth is I'm not poor
And that the bag is fine
Although it is unconventional
The fact is it's mine!

The thing is I like it
Small, light and plain
With no added features
That threaten to make me vain

It is easy to carry around
Especially when you're in a rush
Because it just wraps around your pens
In a way that makes you gush 

But now as I look at its many holes
I feel that it is time to part
So farewell my quirky pencil box
I'll store my memories in my heart
