That’s Where He Will Be. (For Steve Jobs)

There’s lots of things that I don’t know, the afterlife is one.
I tend to think we live our lives, and after that it’s done.
But if there is a place revealing great technology,
That’s where he will be.

Technology was for the few when his work did begin.
An era for “the rest of us” is what he ushered in.
And if there is a place with a “mere mortals” citizenry,
That’s where he will be.

I know there’s hardship in the world, and tragedy unmeasured,
But cannot use that to deny that there are also treasures.
And if there is a place where the consumer holds the key,
That’s where he will be.

So I’ll always be grateful that he bucked the status quo.
Not satisfied with where we were; knew somewhere else to go.
And if there is a place for those who see what we can’t see,
That’s where he will be.

  1. I can see the epitaph on his tombstone: “Steven Paul Jobs. Chief Mere Mortal. 1955-2011.”I think he would be proud to have a legacy as the chief proponent of technology for use by mere mortals, not just technologists. That is certainly why his accomplishments are measured in product announcements.And happily, he lived to see the Knowledge Navigator realized … as Siri in iPhone 4S. The future is now.
