Taking Notes

My journaling has me in stitches;
As paper consumes all my riches.
From forests to trees,
I’ve felled them with ease,
And still my old writer’s cramp itches.

Perhaps we have found a solution
To end the rainforest pollution.
I’ll tap on my keys,
Without guarantees.
And plead for worldwide distribution.
