Pencil And Pen

Life is not always fair.
For instance an honor given to a utensil.
How could they dare
Not give it to the pencil?

I am distraught by this awful strife
Between the pencil and the pen.
Pen was awarded to name a knife.
A knife! To sharpen a pen! When?

No,no,no! It should be a pencilknife.
We all have sharpened a pencil that way.
I myself have done it all my life.
Rebel people! The name of pen should not stay!

So too another worse case is in the air
That surely would be unfair.
Citizens! Arise if you have the guts to dare.
Cry aloud across the land, "Nay to Obamacare"!

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
