Favored Ink Pen

Spreading black ink
my life blood over the page
I’m thrilled to be her preferred tool
for penning great verse.

In no time at all
I’ll be sent
to ink pen heaven
if she continues at this pace.

And I will go with honor
to be with my retired sisters
knowing I provided the words
to her most laudable rhetoric.
