I'm trying out new pencils
this morning
to see if new pencils
will translate
into new words, new thoughts,
new poems.
I think that's how
the government thinks.
When a problem
or a perceived problem
comes to the attention
of politicians,
they pass new laws,
hoping the new laws
will surpass the old laws
in solving the problem.
Or they allocate new money
hoping more money
will make the problem
go away.
May I suggest they invest in
new pencils.
