Late great engineers: Alan Turing


Alan Turing

bright young thing

a shining light

proved right




code breaker

with his meaningful machine

named after his dear childhood friend


persecuted for being gay

in the end ate poisoned apple

one way to do  away with himself

we have to grapple with that

where it's at

Turing's influence

is enduring

today & beyond
