What's On My Desk

A mug full of pens,

Four cough drops, a spoon

A malfunctioning whistle,

Eight reference books blue

A free tiny set

Of salt-pepper shakers

A huge cluttered mess

Of scribbled-on papers

A bookmark that's inked

With mountain tops high,

A pencil, a button,

A book for the shy

A ring for a finger

A slight bit too large

Enough scattered thoughts

To fit on a barge

A pair of old pliers

That shine nice and clean,

A calendar's title

That's colored in green

A planner that's full

Of many new capers

An empty container

For chocolate fudge wafers

A sketched out beret,

Some misshapen clay,

This list is too long

To clean in one day!

This poem is about: 
Me
