A New Desk By Bill Beeler (October ‘95) Hey, I need a new desk. There are many things I need to do. Count our money and pay all our bills. Record our ancestors and write our book. Write to our family and to our friends. Why not just use the kitchen table? The new desk is made of oak, course the old one was too. The new desk has lots of work space, course the old one had almost as much. The new desk is easier to move, course the old one had more wood in it. The new desk has lots of promise, course the old one had character. The new desk has three extra drawers, course they don’t hold much more Hey, I want a new desk.
