“Permanent Ink”

Elegantly with a quill,
Records scrape the clean paper.
A scratch, one stroke, one drip.
How many words can you make
With one single dip?

A word is grand,
But a sentence is grander.
I bid thee write for grace
And disregard words of slander.

A reminder: Permanent Ink
Dries quickly, like a thin meander.
Before you write, it’s best to think
And write with candid candor.
