Dare to Succeed
Tony Haynes is a practitioner of Acrostic Poetry. In less than a
minute Tony can literally pull a poem out of thin air. Give him the
title of what you’d like to call your poem, and he will create it for
you on the spot.
The catch is, he will write your name in the air, and show you how the
beginning of each line in the poem he’s creating spells the letters of
your name downward. It’s an eloquent combination of spontaneous
penmanship & showmanship. The poem is being written down as he speaks
it into existence. This way, the person he’s creating it for has an
instant one-of-a-kind personalized gift that they can cherish for a
