It’s worn down almost to the end.
You can tell it worked hard.
But, it’s still sharp.
Don’t underestimate it.
It still can work.
It has some lead in it.
You’ll have to hold it tight, but it will still write.
Maybe it’s potential has been squeezed….almost…but not yet.
Oh, yes, pencil nubs have potential.
Just hold it and write.
You won’t even recognize that blank page when you’re done.
And then we will all know.
The potential had nothing to do with the nub.
And the potential had everything to do with the nub.
