RIGHT ON!ROOM 266

Dr. T. Pinnock 1962 (Hartford, Ct)



Rich, Ross, Bob and Ted
They go to bed.
That’s what I said!
We always get in trouble
We all blow bubbles.
It has four beds,
I wish we had four Teds ???????
We bother
And they holler.
We fight in the night.
Do you go BOO?
Quick we better now show.
They will always say “No.”
This room is bad.
They will make you mad.
They would be glad.
This room is bad.

Ted Pinnock
THINK A LITTLE LONGER

This is a boy,
Filled with a lot of JOY,
Think a little longer.
You will get stronger.

T.P.

LOST BOY

This boy named Ted
He was walking through the woods,
He got lost and his mother was going out of her head.
They found the boy.
One and one is two. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!

Dr. T. Pinnock

Dr. Pinnock first wrote poetry in the institution he resided in inside a classroom at 8 years old. The typewriter was old and manual with a keyguard. A keyguard is a device with an opening for each key to prevent a person lacking fine motor skills from accidentally hitting a key. Dr. Pinnock was granted permission to use the class alone. He labored there typing for hours ignoring his cerebral palsy. Dr. Pinnock grew up with his family until August of 1970. Poverty forced his parents to make him a ward of the State of Connecticut. more…
