Peno - Poem by Clarence A. Graham, Jr.

Peno would rent his Penodime for a dime any ole time
If someone would want to rent it three times in a row, they could for a quarter

A Penodime was a musical instrument that Peno invented and owns the patent on
It was so popular that it was played all over the world

One could ask the Penodime to play certain music and it would play the song
Peno played his Penodime in concerts many times at Carnegie Hall and other Music Halls

Peno had a friend whose name was Goldy
Goldy was an expert goldsmith

Peno asked Goldy to make a solid gold Penodime for him
Goldy said, 'Yes, Peno, I will'

After the solid gold Penodime was made,
It played the most beautiful music this side of Heaven
