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?’


‘No, Penicillin!’


Then he got me a pen


‘No, watch!’

He imitated 

a magic ‘whoosh’ 

hiding the pen 

behind his back.



Again with the same pen

Pointing at the wall


I look confused.

‘Penumbra, you idiot!’


Then the pen 

As a bookmark

For a Bible

‘Penny wise!’


Pen pointing 

at his teeth


You won’t get that 

unless you know 

a little Tamil.


Pen in a colander


I got one right!


Pen on car door


'No! Pendent!'


He’s thinking of more pen puns

I’m penning them down.
