¥@, Chris, Da Streetz
I was born an Italian farm boy
With the coming years I left for America
I went to school for electricity
After I finished I worked for Edison
He promised a high payoff if I could make my AC power real
However when I finally did Edison lied
He didn’t pay me for it, he rejected it
He knew it would make his DC power worthless.
So I left and marketed it myself
Then when the world’s fair came, I won the battle
The world wanted AC over DC.
Many successes came to me
Loads of patents filed
Many inventions created.
Sadly though, in the older years I went crazy
I lived in a hotel and claimed the impossible
No one believed me, and I passed awayThe fact of whether or not I did is for ever a mystery
So who am I?
Well you know those gadgets your using in class right now
Yeah, I invented the first, the first computer
But somehow I didn’t get any big media around me
Maybe it was because I was too old
They do call me “the father of computing “ that’s a plus
I was born in London, I taught myself algebra
When I attended the university of Cambridge
I was smarter then my professors, they would say
Everyone did acknowledge me for my smarts
But not for the invention of the computer people use everyday
It’s not fair in my opinion
So the next time you use your computer
Or whatever they call it nowadays remember my nameCharles Babbage.

The world is the way it is because of me
They passed over it in the 80’s
Me and my college spent ages trying to perfect our work
It all payed off in the end and everyone uses our creation
But no one remembers us or who made it
That’s okay because deep down we know
That we have revolutionized the world in more ways than one
The real reward isn’t the fame or the moneyIt’s the change that came along with it
