PLEASE REVIEW/COMMENT! - A Dedication to Alan Turing

September 19, 2019

FREE WRITING

8
The clack of a gear
The turn of a cog
A preposterous way to see through the fog
Of the Code among Codes
The riddle of war
But the German's Enigma an enigma no more,
Because of a man
Who lived in disgrace
Living a life of rejection and hate
And who kindled the fire
Burning inside
And poured it into his work as he tried
To break Enigma -
An impossible feat
He built a machine and when it was complete
It failed to function
His work to no avail
Was it not? Not so - he was soon to prevail!
In a moment of truth
It all came together - 
The German's worst weapon disarmed forever

The Father of computers 
Ever enduring
May your memory always live on, Alan Turing.
This is dedicated to Alan Turing, master codebreaker, without whom I would never have existed.

    There was actually another line at the end (describing the end of his life) but WTW removed the whole piece due to regulations. But republished now! All good.
