Pencil and Paper Guy
By: Curtis A. Carroll, 5/24/2016
‘Am a pencil and paper kinda guy
I know absolutely nothing about algorithms’ and Wi-Fi
I type with two fingers and see with two eyes,
I cross all my T’s and dot all the I’s,
That’s why I am a pencil and paper kinda guy.
If I feel like a good story, I read a book
I don’t download it or get it from Amazon Nook
I like the feel of a book in my hand,
And when ‘am done reading, I mark it with a rubber band;
That’s why I am a pencil and paper kinda man.
When ‘am driving I don’t text or use the cell
Too often drivers get crushed and the rest of their life is hell.
I have disconnected the phones – nothing more to say;
#Hash tag: getalife, or Go shopping on EBay.
“You are just a pencil and paper guy!” They all say.
