Dear sir,

If someone says,
"Everyone forgive this pen, it will never evoke."

what does he mean by "pen"?
And what does "a pen evokes" mean?

Truely grateful for your valuable answers.

There are two possibilities that I can see:

A. The author blames the pen, and not himself, for his inability to write.

Everyone forgive this implement/tool/instrument, it will never inspire nor draw forth memories or responses.

B. The author uses 'pen' to refer to his work:

Everyone forgive this work, it will never inspire nor draw forth memories or a response.

Thank you very much for your reply.

The speaker here (standing) is giving a speech
(or rather just gibbering jokes) in a bar in front of other people.

His jokes are not entertaining people.
So from your second suggestion (B), do you think he is trying to say:

"Please excuse my jokes. They are never funny." ?

Any suggestion is heartfully welcome.

That sounds even better. 8) :D

Please excuse my method of expression. Joking/Jokes never seems to work for me.
