For years they whispered behind his back,
They just couln't relate to uncle Jack
Who was constantly miserable inside the box,
He felt so chained- and trapped with locks!
He tried to comply with what he was told,
But he just couldn't squeeze into the mold.
Choices in the box were just up or down,
But Jack just wanted to go to town.
One day he just had enough,
Life in the box was much too tough!!
He wiggled and jiggled and turned his crank,
with all his strength he gave a YANK.
And felt the rip that set him free,
Now uncle Jack was filled with glee,
With boundless energy he bounced all around,
learning from everything that could be found,
He pondered the purpose and meaning of life,
and discovered new ways to prevent world strife,
(He even managed to find a wife-
Her name is Jill, yes that one from the hill),
His creative ideas the doctors resisted,
But Jack found the cures, because he persisted.
He grew as he helped the others he met,
and his work isn't done- not as of yet.
As a child they considered him a zero.
but now they admit that he's a real hero!
We've all met people that seem a bit weird,
Maybe we're snobs or maybe just scared,
Gather your courage, be brave and reach out,
the response you'll get will assuage your doubt.
Beware and don't look at that odd guy with disdain,
For one day he may do surgery on your brain,
So the next time you meet someone who doesn't follow the pack,
Before you pass judgment-
Remember Uncle Jack.
