If I Were Born A Little Early

If I were born a little early
I would have made electricity
First to say — The Earth is round
Cures for diseases I would have found
Would have theorized gravitational law
Leave everyone trailing in awe
Would have had a star named after me
A constellation or galaxy
Future generations would have studied me
My brain, my life, my family
But I was born a little too late
Never had the chance to become so great
All the others took away my due
So I’m stuck here writing poems for you

  1. A Note In Passing?
    Every factual thing has actually been laid bare,
    Sadly, looking back, I guess ya had to be there,
    Nowadays nothing left to find in scientific endeavour,
    Hey embrace today, better to be born late than never.
