Trying to Write

As I prepare to express my thoughts,
I sharpen
CRUNCH!
my pencil.
WIRR!
Placing it onto the page,
I begin to write.
SCRATCH! SNAP!
My pencil breaks.
I begin to sharpen again,
CRUNCH! WIRR!
in a plug-in sharpener.
ZAP!
I seem to have blown a fuse.
Carefully, I begin to take out the plug,
POP!
and I try not to get...
ZZZZZAP!
electrocuted.

Love this, it's hilarious. Reminds me of a poem I had to write where you use sounds to express yourself. Really great!
