Haiku Poem – 米国特許商標庁での仕事

invention create
new idea submit
grant patent

(Ben version) 
アイデア さく かぜ で ただよう とっきょ なる

はつめい や わけあう アイデア とっきょ きょか

(Michiko version)
はつめい は じじつ か いな か よく ぎんみ

ぎんみ して はつめいひん を ひょうか する

At the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, some people look at patents and other people look at trademarks. I look at patents. It is difficult because you have to work by yourself. Inventors will fill out an application. Then, they will submit it to the office. After that, we have to evaluate the invention. If we believe that the invention is really new, then we can approve a patent. The process can be long and difficult. However, the technology is interesting. People might think that we only see big inventions. Actually, we see lots of things like microwaves and hot water heaters. Every application is different and every one is important. It is nice to do something to help the public.
