Its My Own Invention
What Is it Called?

I frowned and gasped and took a pill,
Wanting more but fearing less.
I waited for answers sweet and full of thrill,
but expecting quite a mess.
"Please come tell me just how you live!"
I shouted in his face.
I waited for his answer to give.
And stared off into space.

The old man nodded with quite a smile.
I have many gifts to use.
He paused speaking for a short while.
Of my many skills I choose,
To paint the shells of abalone,
and decorate a moose,
but alas it comes out looking phony.

I choose instead to paint the sky,
for two pence and dental floss,
I paint till my pen runs dry.
The result is sold at a loss,
for nature doesn't pay well.
I get two fish for all my toil,
and ten leaves to sell.
To purify the soil.
