A poem I prompted chat GPT to write about my 42 years of hoarding LEDs…
Hi, I’m Geoff, and LEDHD is my plight,
A disorder born from a colorful light.
It began when I was merely three,
With Tungsten’s glow, the spark in me.
First, it was red, a vibrant hue,
Then green emerged, with a vibrant view.
Yellow and orange joined the rainbow’s call,
A symphony of colors, standing tall.
But oh, blue, where were you, my dear?
I waited with longing, year after year.
My wife never knew, my secret desire,
To find that elusive, captivating sapphire.
Finally, I found you, so precious and rare,
Took you home, hoping you’d glow and share,
But alas, I overvoltaged, oh what a shame,
Green you became, a different name.
But fret not, for it’s just a burnt junction,
A lesson learned, a valuable instruction.
Next time, I’ll remember, only three volts I’ll employ,
To keep the flame alive, to bring back the joy.
