ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL a drive by poem by Flyrod

Simon liked to draw but he couldn’t do math
And that shut him down in his academic path

Pretty girls and cars, were all he ever knew
But he didn’t have a nickle and his future was askew

“Do you like Art?”, the ad so boldly read
“Draw for Money”, is what the headline said

For a mid-century guy in his late teens
This could be the ticket for a guy without the means

He mailed in the coupon with a ten dollar bill
For a home study course that would give him such a thrill

He liked a girl in school who’s name was Jenny
When it came to good looks, she sure had plenty

Simon drew her picture and put it in her locker
She told all her friends, she was such a talker

Simon asked Jenny if she would like to pose
When he got out his sketch pad she dropped all her clothes

When the word got around it caused a big scandal
For Simon and Jenny it was too much to handle

They were kicked out of school for immoral behavior
But they both had talent, and that would be their savior

Simon got hired at this advertising place
He was drawing new cars and setting quite a pace

Jenny got a job as a model for fashion
Walking that runway was her new passion

They achieved success by the time they were twenty
They pursued their dreams, now they both had plenty

When you do what you love…and with a bit of luck
You might get through life and even make a buck
