The Price Of Genius Poem by Alan Bruce Thompson

The Price Of Genius

Rating: 5.0

Even Albert had to work in an office,
The genius Einstein needed to show some service.

The ideas for relativity came in between,
The filing of drawings for a spinning machine.

The work for the planetary bending of light,
Came between the patenting of a new gun sight.

Scientists are not allowed ideas above their station,
Filling out forms is the right level of elevation.

What use anyway is this academic background?
The speed of copyrighting is more important than the speed of sound.

Those lofty academics should be brought back to Earth,
Of office workers and administrators should be no dearth.

Why do we need these abstract ideas?
It's only the chief accountant we need to please.

Why do we need progress? why do we need to invent?
With rows of filed virtual paper the world is quite content.
