Why Thomas Alva, sitting there in Menlo Park
In his fancy genius pants
Would find that his major tinker’s dams
Would only thrive through the genius
Of Nikola Tesla?
Thomas Alva could have electrocuted
Every dog in New Jersey and every
Elephant, if he could find any,
And Tesla would still have come to eat his lunch.
DC or AC
Any hayseed could tell you
That electricity is the bomb
Without knowing what Carrington
Saw when TAE and NT were mere babes.
Current runs through the veins of the Earth
But the million-times-larger Sun
That white star magnet just 93 million miles
Off to the right runs the whole show.
