Me & My Pencil
I love my pencil, my pencil is grand.
It’s light to the touch and light in my hand.
My belly is big but it matters not, as long as I have words and I have thought.
So if you wish to be good at this, get a pencil, you’ll see.
The sun will shine and happiness will be thine.

Author Agostino Scafidi has a newly-published book called Fancy Pants Poetry. I wondered about the title he chose for this collection and he told me, "I sort of felt like I wanted to make my work stand out, as well as show that I'm not one of those "stuffed shirt" poets. Not all of his poems are fraught with fighting fears and conformity. He captures the beauty of the moment with, "Everything that sways,/Dancing to a song,/Waving to the sun,/Bowing to the moon".
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a 1997 book written by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter. It advocates the importance of financial literacy (financial education), financial independence and building wealth through investing in assets, real estate investing, starting and owning businesses, as well as increasing one's financial intelligence (financial IQ) to improve one's business and financial aptitude. Rich Dad Poor Dad is written in the style of a set of parables, ostensibly based on Kiyosaki's life.
Artist's release notes: Approximately eight minutes in length, this is an accompaniment piece to the album with the same name. Consider it a sort of introduction.
Oh, thank you, sir; but take the pencil too; I'm not a beggar, I'm a business man. Pencils I deal in, red and black and blue; It's hard, but still I do the best I can. Most days I make enough to pay for bread, A cup o' coffee, stretching room at night. One needs so little - to be warm and fed, A hole to kennel in - oh, one's all right.
