Ode to Humanity, From the Ghost of Tesla
To Humanity, my best, I send,
from my memories of the past,
My devotion to give, of all yesterdays,
and this to be my last.
Reflections in the pools of minds,
exciting thoughts, collected,
A benefiting, a sharing, of kinds,
that seem, too often, rejected.
My acts, an "electric igniter",
a sparking plug, a restart of all man,
In radio, the vacuum tube,
I send rays of hope, where it all began.
An electric charge that amplifies,
in transmitting messages to Mars,
A new communication, such innovation,
in raising all the bars.
A kick start to intelligence, seen,
is to inventiveness, as wireless electricity,
The engines to propel, the concepts to sail,
beyond all life, in its vast circuitry.
There are no limits to be set, for our minds,
in their showing, a greatest revelation,
The relativity of all, is a matter of fact,
to be a removal of humanistic abrogation.
My hat's off to the future of traveling,
communication, and for this world, a peace,
My spirit's restless and so requires my work,
and for my soul, now to be released.
Please accept my recognition, and as always,
it's to be my greatest conviction,
The universal needs of man, will find a way,
within each heart, there's very little restriction.
As eager flowers await, in their anticipation
upturned, their faces, all to raise,
The human race, in its state of grace,
is then, ultimately, left to appraise.
I lift my glass, in my grandest salute,
in hopes for each, a sanity,
I bid adieu to all of my kind,
for a happier world, to see.
