The Philosopher’s Stone

He was born in a small town
A cave to be exact
Birthed in scrawled hieroglyphics
plastered upon the walls
the exordium of the diagram
and the value of the how-to

He discovered fire
Then created the match
Learned to trap
With hands of snares
and how to kill
fashioning wood
into a club

Centuries later
he found science
Hired as a compass
Navigating maps
Called out as heresy
once he figured out
that the sun
didnt revolve around

He eventually
Attended college
Studied biology
Minored in math
Got straight A’s in physics
Graduated cum laude
Took his first real job
As an atomic bomb
He was eventually let go

Moved out to California
For a career in big tech
Re-imagined in cauldrons of blueprints
Java, C++ and scientific decree
Carried atop the backs of 5g
and the disappearing tunes
of the songbirds and bees
Forcing every head to bow
And silencing every tongue
through censored text
Thus his Magnum Opus
Ab ovo of fire
to the lordship
of man

His newly upgraded quantum computing algorithm will surely turn heads:

Just look at his latest invention:
A mega ultra Goldberg device consisting of whorls turning cogs winding gears pulling chains attached to a trapdoor of marbles spiraling down inclined planes that strike a rack that unlatches a pinion that drives a wheel into a couple whatchamacallits that twist a lever springing the release of a suspended mass that pressures sprockets into turning a hammer upside down striking the thingamabob at its fulcrum which drops the ball triggering the rotating plastic Christmas lawn ornament into a rolling sphere whilst simultaneously setting off a series of events that cause hydraulic rotating doohickies to expel compressed gas converting chemical reactions from solar electromagnetic coils cooled to absolute zero which transfers kinetic energy to a wound up pulley that repels a magnet into dropping a domino which fixes companies into exchanging the enthalpy from fossil fuels into fusing atoms which pulls some weight into lubricating the funding to launch nuclearized nano drones that will implement several gizmos that’ll trigger an assembly chain of yet to be invented robotic doodads that’ll design, synthesize and implant a remotely controlled Google chip straight into the human brain…

Ta Dah!

Come marvel and behold
At the chrysopoeia
From the abacus to gold
And the transformation
of the wrench
into the crown
