My Poetry

Big Green Sharpie!

Am spending my workday sorting through a ton of paperwork given to me to untangle. It is mostly in Spanish, much of it crumpled from traveling in backpacks, and all of it highly convoluted. So I am creating order out of disorder with the help of my….. (cue the music! I feel a song coming on!)


Big Green Sharpie
Gonna get me through my day

Big Green Sharpie
Fine Point Marker all the way!

Big Green Sharpie
Gonna make it all okay

Big Green Sharpie
Make my troubles go away

Oh! Sharpie! Forest Green and large
With you in my hand, I’m feeling so in charge
Oh! Sharpie! Emerald hued and huge
I’ll tell the world to bite me, I know you’re not a kludge!

Big Green Sharpie
Makin’ marks upon my paper

Big Green Sharpie
All my troubles go to vapor!

Big Green Sharpie
Life with you is such a caper

Big Green Sharpie
You’re so silky, not a scraper

(Repeat chorus loud enough to wake up cubiclemates)

You’re so BIG!
You’re so GREEN!
You’re the best I’ve ever seen!

My favorite old standby!
Your fumes make me high!
So happy I could cry!

Biiiiiiiig – GREEN! *two step* SHARPIE!
whoa whoa whoa scoobydobedoBOP!
