If I Had a Time Machine
If I had a time machine, I would do amazing things
Like visit Saturn’s wondrous rings
Or travel to a distant star
In my future rocket car.
Perhaps I’d journey to the past
And visit with my old Grampaps.
He’d be young, and I’d be too.
“I’m your grandson, kid – how are you?”
Or maybe I’d go underwater
And swim with Neptune’s only daughter
We’d journey where the waters grant us
To find the city of Atlantis.
What a jaunt!
Time machines are fun, no doubt
But once you’re in, you can’t get out
All of time’s wrapped in a box
That we call a paradox.
We can’t escape -
what’s done is done
And what’s ahead is still to come
But still it’s pleasant just to dream
Of what I would do with a time machine.
