Today’s prompt ~ A GENUINE GENIUS

A GENUINE GENIUS

by John Yeo

The inventor’s name was Sir Ponsonby-Smythe 

A man who thought of almost everything,

The wonderful news was he was still alive.

~

A genuine genius who would always strive

To attain his goal and forge an upswing.

The inventor’s name was Sir Ponsonby-Smythe. 

~

He managed to blow himself up yet survive

His angelic thoughts simply took wing,

The wonderful news was he was still alive.

~

When Death arrived he snatched the scythe 

Refusing to accept Death’s deadly sting,

The inventor’s name was Sir Ponsonby-Smythe. 

~

He would lapse into unconsciousness, then revive,

His genius brain cells would sparkle and zing,

The wonderful news was he was still alive.

~

Our genuine genius simply refused to connive

Or succumb to any unfortunate downswing.

The inventor’s name was Sir Ponsonby-Smythe. 

The wonderful news was he was still alive.
