Why is it?
When life hangs in the balance,
and the chips are down.
Tell me why?
When the situation's dire,
that i can never find,
A working ballpoint pen

if the pen is mighter then the sword then the word processer must be mighter then the missile

I can never find my car keys...
I can never get the cap off...
I can never pull the trigger...

yeah, I am a big fan of short poems that say one thing really well, as this does.
