This little standard pencil is named Nib.
He was born sharp and has been the same height since the crib.
Unlike the other yellow pencils that are #2’s,
Nib has been #1 since he was new.
To his parent’s pride,
Nib’s knowledge base is deep and wide.
He is every teacher’s pet,
scoring over 100 on every written or financial test.
Nib is an avid doodler, an ace accountant and a prolific writer.
Always smiling, his only peeve is pencil biters.
He jots and tallies in bold leaded caps or cursive.
His work is passionate, exacting and coercive,
always on point and not discursive.
His tip and eraser never wear down,
so if you care for him he will always be around.
A brighter pencil cannot be found.
