The Ballad of Magnetism

A force that draws us together
Hidden from sight
A coin rushing to reconcile with a magnet;
A concept so recondite

Impossible to see – but your intuition knows this phenomenon
You know not the laws of attraction in play hereupon;

A magnet and a copper tube won’t stick
It seems there’s a very static relationship
But to every failed marriage there was a trick
In order to discover true companionship

In humans it’s pheromones
In everything it’s magnetism;
Revealing all the unknowns
And entrancing you with mysticism

A coin loves the magnet it will follow it everywhere,
Given it be close in proximity
But they’re so easy to tear apart; longer moments they’ll never share,
They know it, that’s why they have such keen affinity (to one another)

But copper and magnet will never know that magic –
Unless one were willing to make an adaption
If copper metamorphoses into the form of cylindrical tube
Together they’ll create Electromagnetic Induction

The coin and the rod, the coin will fall through
But for our dear magnet, the former doesn’t hold true

Instead he generates a magnetic field
That when falling through causes changes
The electric field curls around the pipe…gravity yields
Curling induces a current and their connection rearranges

A current the two share
But both remain unaware

Energy dissipates and the magnet falls slowly…
Wishing they could stay together – if only.
