How about . . . "A simple pencil is a mighty sword in the battle against illiteracy!"

Well, I thought of others, but this seemed the most tasteful for what is probably a homework piece . . . could've been "A pencil is dagger in the heart of stupidity!"

Very nice!

I like the 'dagger' line even better!

@ms.t: So do I, Misty. Lots of impact.

@Mello: Perhaps it could be used to draw one of your sandbags to hold back the tsunami of illiteracy?

A pencil is like a mind, they both need to be sharp to be useful.

Look this up if it's a bit obscure:

My pencil, long and slender palimpsest, recorder and eraser of my thoughts.

Of course, the palimpsest was really the tablet, not the pencil, but you get the idea.

Equally of course, pencils are a bit old-hat now. It's easier to erase you thoughts on a word-processor ... but NEVER record a temporary thought on the Internet.
