Scissors and a Crayon by Tim Seston
The full cast is in the Arts and Crafts room making the project
of the day. Each table sings a different part that creates a
background chorus for Olive's more introspective solo.
Table 1: Scissors and a Crayon x,x,x . . .
Table 2: x,x A stapler, a hole punch and glue . . .
Table 3: Duck tape – I’ve got some Duck tape – I’ve got some .
Olive is sitting at a table with others but is in her own world
If I had a ruler and a pencil
I could draw precisely what I please
Sitting at my table, I have all the time I want
Everything is just right. I’m at ease.
There is nothing better than a paintbrush
Colors dripping slowly from the sky
Raining in my room, all the flowers are in bloom
Tears start welling up inside my eye.
