I went to Lahe Lahe for Write Out Loud. Their theme for the week was Puns.




Pen Puns

My brother put a pencil 

on the window sill 

And asked 

‘What is this?’

‘Pencil’

‘No, Penicillin!’

 

Then he got me a pen

‘Pen?’

‘No, watch!’

He imitated 

a magic ‘whoosh’ 

hiding the pen 

behind his back.

‘Pentagon!’

 

Again with the same pen

Pointing at the wall

‘Penwall?’

I look confused.

‘Penumbra, you idiot!’

 

Then the pen 

As a bookmark

For a Bible

‘Penny wise!’

 

Pen pointing 

at his teeth

‘Penpal!’

You won’t get that 

unless you know 

a little Tamil.

 

Pen in a colander

'Pensive!'

I got one right!

 

Pen on car door

'Pandora?'

'No! Pendent!'

 

He’s thinking of more pen puns

I’m penning them down.
