    Super-­‐Otto- by Shane D. Stewart © 2015

    Look up in the sky,
    it’s a bird, it’s a jet.
    No costume, just a scarf, as Super-­‐Otto gets.
    Ready to start,
    the lessons of the day.
    Kissing his Daughter,
    Beverly Hills, where they stay.
    His Wife multi-­‐talented,
    started as a percussionist.
    Then studied pastry science,
    now cooking on camera with guests.
    Bread, Love, & Dreams, will show you the steps.
    Ale Gambini,
    baking breads in depth.
    One Hundred percent, Italian, from Milan.
    Blogging her recipes, with Love for her Nonna.
    Every last bite,
    from the cheesecake pan.
    The taste on the lips,
    as U2, become a fan.
    Mauricio Otto De Togni, started his dreams.
    Back in the days,
    with the Italian esteemed.
    Seeking them out,
    to start his career with a shout. Up on the stage,
    Techno scene was about.
    Keyboards, Moog synths,
    He operated with flair. Dressed to impress,
    with his blonde streaked hair.
    A Pisces of Seventy Two,
    learning all types of instruments.
    Captured his calling,
    Music Maker arrangements.
    Collaboration’s key,
    in his Life’s success.
    As he produced the music, from Milan, no rest.
    Proceeded to collect, the awards and honors.
    Certificate piles,
    next to the scores.
    Commercial ads, his musical themes.
    Teaches full time, two schools scenes.
    UCLA, and M.I.,you can catch a class.
    Pro Tools and Logic, his knowledge is vast.
    The King of Certifications, even Cupertino he’s roamed.
    One Infinite Loop,
    Apple’s HQ time zone.
    Thank you for making, learning appear fun.
    Super-­‐Otto flies,
    up into the sun.

    For You, with Love. 😉
