Chronolocity Vol 1 : The Inventor’s Song

            

So along with some main characters there are a few supporting characters that pop up in Chronolocity. Noel Roarke, Levy’s father is home recovering from his near fatal accident. He often cheers up Levy, by singing his favorite song (when he was in third grade) The Inventor’s Song. It tells the story of some well-known inventors and how they never gave up, even when the going got tough.

Dad: “Hey Levy, it looks like you’ve had one of THOSE days today.”

Levy: “Man, Dad, you have no idea.”

Dad: “Actually, I do. Remember that Inventor’s Song I wrote?”

Levy: “Ah, yes. Please don’t tell me you’re going to sing it now.”

Dad: “Sure, it’s the perfect time day like today.”

Levy: “Really? Now?”

Dad: “You loved that song.”

Levy: “When I was in like…third grade.”

Dad: “I think it’s a reminder to not stop dreaming, Son.”

Levy: “You’re going to start singing now aren’t you?”

Dad: “Uh-huh.”

Da Vinci wrote down his

Intricate plans,

With ink and parchment

Of dusty old tan.

A Renaissance man

He was called by some;

Inventor and painter for a time to come.

Issace Newton

Newton’s color was

A brilliant red

For the fruit that smacked him

Upside his head.

It’s then he discovered

Gravity

Below that grand old apple tree.

GW Carver

George Washington Carver

Was just nuts about his plan,

To crack the secrets

Of brown peanut land.

We count more than

Four hundred ways

He made use of that nut

In normal folk’s days.

Squeeze-cheeks

Levy: “Dad, are you going to sing the entire song, now?”

Dad: “Uh-huh.”

Levy: “Sigh.”

“I was getting to your favorite inventor, Levy.”

“I figured that’s where you were going with this.”

“Right.”

“I bet you think I am going to sing with you?”

“He’s your hero.”

“I think you see the light.”

Edison

Edison caused

The world to see,

With the yellow bulb of

Electricity.

How many times to make it right?

I’ve lost count but that man was bright.

Henry Ford

Henry Ford built a factory

On four black tires

For his Mo-del  T.

Because he built

The motor car

We can hit the roads

And travel far.

Einstein

His friends were green

With jealousy

When Einstein discovered

Relativity.

When E equals MC

Squared,

They called him a genius

Even with crazy white hair.”

Levy mad

“Not all scientists have wild crazy hair.”

“No, just the really smart ones.”

“Uh-uh. Thanks.

“And the mad ones” (sinister Igor laugh)

“Dad? DAD!” (Dad still laughing)

“Son?”

marconi

Marconi first cranked up

The radio tunes

With invisible music

Through the wild blue.

FM AM XM stations,

Bring his waves

Across the nations.

age-of-invention1

Gold is the color

Just for me,

The inventor who is yet to be.

Give me some time,

Give me a chance,

And I too will shine

My work will dance.

DaaaaAAAAaaNce.

Baby Robot

“See, when you smile, the sun comes out.”

“Thanks, Dad.”

“Don’t loose your sense of humor, that will keep the mad scientist in you sane, trust me.”

“Gees, Dad. You’re going to do the robot, aren’t you?

“Of course.”

“Only my dad”

“Son, this is our dance. Don’t tell me you’re too cool to do the robot with your dad.”

“As long as you don’t put it on You Tube.”

“Riiiight.”
