My Paintbrush Is A Pencil

You can give me any paintbrush,
And colored papers galore,
But painting, I tell you,
It feels like a chore.
I can’t paint a sailboat,
Without making it look bent,
I can’t paint a racecar,
Without giving it a dent.
My paintbrush is a pencil,
My easel is a page,
The lead is my color,
The notebook is my cage.
So now I’m trying something extremely new,
I’m painting a picture with words to you.
