Hi Elisha,Thanks very much for the poivtsie feedback. As someone who
previously worked in a school I completely agree! PaperCut makes a small
difference but it all adds up! With tens of thousands of schools out there
implementing print quotas, I’m sure it adds up to quite a few trees
every day!Cheers, Chris

This poem elaborates solely on the life of an excitement dulled and drained
by the apparent reality that overtakes and monotonizes it. Bringing ones
excitement of the inpending unknown into the drab grasp of finding out and
then back to the blissfulness of ignorance and simplicity.
