In the Elysian Fields of sonofusion,

in our beakers of hydrogen bubbles

exploding into light and energy

in a nanosecond flash,

we have tapped the heart of the sun.

Like an assembly line

at full bore

we will deliver power

to the touch of the millions.

And once everyone has unlimited fire

in their lives,

we will leave the world

as we know it behind.

Embrace the stubborn dream

of perpetual energy.

Hear the generators

start to hum

with a steadfast beat.

Listen carefully

and you will taste

the whine of the future.
