Young Einstein

Einstein's first gift to the world you see,
Was the Special Theory of Relativity.
A long time passed before fame or fortune,
Rewarded him in proper proportion.

E=mc2 - Perhaps it looked too simple,
To be a revolutionary new principle.
After all it only seemed to define,
A key relationship for all mankind.

With an Atomic Age we now were gifted.
If mass to energy is so easily converted,
Some of our thinking must be inverted.
