You’re never too old to draw with crayons.
I once drew a dinosaur scene on my grandparent's wall.
T-rex and long necks over 30 feet tall.
My raptor looked lonely so I thought I'd draw double.
"Wow. You're going to be in so much trouble."
My sister's comment came with such great surprise.
She didn't stop to see the detail in the Triceratop's eyes.
No compliments or critiques, she just walked on by.
She returned with a smirk and someone by her side.
My feeling of joy was replaced with pure dread.
Like the crayon I had dropped, my face, pure red.
Grandpa picked up the blood colored cylinder
He than showed me how add our family signature.
My grandpa would jest, as I nearly **** my long-johns:
"You’re never too old to draw with crayons."
Challenge: Write a poem including the line, “You’re never too old to draw with crayons."
For the sake of rhyme, I hope you pronounce it "cra-yons".
