In his poem, “Cause I Ain’t Got a Pencil,” Joshua T. Dickerson describes the damaging effects of poverty:
I woke myself up
Because we ain’t got an alarm clock
Dug in the dirty clothes basket,
Cause ain’t nobody washed my uniform
Brushed my hair and teeth in the dark,
Cause the lights ain’t on
Even got my baby sister ready,
Cause my mama wasn’t home.
Got us both to school on time,
To eat us a good breakfast.
Then when I got to class the teacher fussed
Cause I ain’t got no pencil
But if poverty is the transgressor, education is the great equalizer.
