A long, long time ago,
Was brave enough to try something new
To cause his fearless whistle to blow.
The little engine chugged and chugged
Up the hill with no regrets.
He packed his bags, and didn’t look back,
To help others out on his special quest.
If Edison said, “This connection is lost,”
Let’s shock the world another day.”
We might be stuck in the gloomy dark
With only candles to brighten our way.
With little schooling one can forge their way
When determination puts up a fight.
Just as birds decide to fly south,
And airplanes soar if done just Wright!
And then there’s Alex who loved to talk,
Through wires vibrating and special parts.
He created the tone of a simple Bell
That rings to this day in phones that are smart.
Naismith founded the game of hoops
Looking for a basket of dreams.
Writing the rule book for players to come,
For future championship teams.
Many inventors over the years
Created our current internet craze.
Where apples and chips are never consumed,
But work hand-in-hand with technical praise.
An entrepreneur is a work in progress,
No time in history makes them extinct.
Whether telegraphs or wireless tablets.
The force of discovery may drive them to drink.
Readers can read without a book,
The deaf can speak without a voice,
Writers can write without a pen,
They persevere making a tireless choice.
So remember that little engine that could,
Really started a trend to do more than just stand.
He chugged and chugged to his very last breath
And cried out in victory, “I think I can!”
