How long have we all been waiting for summer ,thought the school supplies. They all were still sitting in the pouch, celebrating the days to come. Meanwhile, three pencils were trying to plan a new government. Before the kid had been ruler. Now it was up to the supplies to rule themselves for the months to come. "I think that the pencils should rule. We were used everyday and have a better sense of the outside world than the other supplies." says Tyson. Marvin agreed, but Robin wasn't so sure. "The other supplies have aspects of the outside world, too. They just have been used at times other than we have. You know that.", she pointed out to the two other pencils. Marvin, the mechanical pencil with white, black, and red strips, thought about how Robin might be right. Tyson was a blue pencil with a black eraser. He immediately objected. He had no reason but said that it was a good reason inside his head. Eventually, the three pencils decided that the supplies could help decide what went on in the pouch. The next day the supplies had decided that everyone was equal. When it came time to elect someone to handle all of the money, the animals couldn't decide who to elect. Eventually the pencils Tyson, Robin, and Marvin decided they would all campaign. Robin promised that the supplies would all get a fair share and would all be able use some money for their own uses. Marvin promised that if their was anyone who needed the money he would lend it, but generally he would have it under his control. Tyson said that he would decide where the money went and no supplies would be able to use it. He also has the scissors on his side. Scissors said ,"We need a strong leader. IF you supplies made the wrong decisions where would be?" There were some murmurs in the crowd but no had the sense to object. Everyone was either frightened or didn't care as to who was leader. As the days of the campaign went on, Marvin was getting frightened at what Tyson was doing to win. He was forcing the supplies to work extremely hard and with out any food. Finally Marvin ran away and wasn't seen by most of the supplies ever again. The day of the election Marvin was nowhere to be found. Robin eventually forfeited because Tyson was so scary. Tyson was very simple in his speech. "All supplies are equal, but some pencils are more equal than other supplies." he said."I also am banning Robin. I think that her ideas are bad and horrible for our society.The way she wants run things is bad. If you made the wrong decisions, then where would we be? " Robin ran frightened that she was going to get beat. She found Marvin and said that she had been banned. He was furious. She was feeling really great because he really cared about her. In the pouch, Tyson was beating the rest of the group and hurting them. The rest of the pencils and the scissors had a great life. When any supply tried to object to this life style the scissors said that its was better now then before. The only problem was that the supplies knew that wasn't true. Meanwhile, Marvin found a way to spy on the pouch. "It looks horrible in there." He tells Robin. Robin was very concerned for all the baby pencil shavings. In years to come, it never got better. The kid never came back as he left for college after that year. Tyson was still a tyrant. Good for Robin and Marvin, they were taken to college with the kid and eventually had baby pencil shavings of their own. All was good for Marvin and Robin, but as for the pouch the future is still bleak and undetermined.
