Tom Smith and His Incredible Bread Machine

November 30, 2009 by

The way to make bread he’d conceived
Cost less than people could believe.
And not just make it! This device
Could, in addition, wrap and slice!
The price per loaf, one loaf or many:
The miniscule sum of under a penny.

Hate poetry, but always loved this one.

A paperback version was done by Fox & Wilkes, LFB book imprint, that I have.

Plus, there is an interesting video & book tie-in with this, done by some college students back in the 60s (I saw the video on youtube).

Takes me back to the nursery rhymes of my school days. Except with sound economics.

Maybe in this form the rabble might actually be able to get some of the basic principles?

Greatest poem EVER!

Note: in “Well, since the Public does conle first, ”
should be ‘come’. Looks like a glitch from scanning.

Good poem anyway!

Mr. Grant:

I read “Incredible Bread Machine” back when I was in high school (your book was new then), and it help to make me a staunch supporter of economic freedom (except, of course, when I`m in my “environazi”, Chicken Little mode).
