Benjamin’s Lightening Rods - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Lightening rods are quite amazing
How they divert much of the energy
In some parts of the counry
Very important they would be

And we have a hero, you know
Who believed in this diversion because
Benjamin Franklin saw the necessity
Proving what a brilliant man he was

So the lightening rod was invented
To help bleed the charge from the clouds
So now folks don’t need to worry where
The lightening strikes and thunder’s loud

And we can thank this famous person
Well, I’ve always loved reading about
Mr. Benjamin Franklin
Who gathers admiration and clout!

    'Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead.'
    This is what comes to my mind whenever I encounter Mr. Benjamin Franklin.
