Time Machine

Once upon a time machine

He fashioned from a box,

With nothing more than crayons

And a cache of broken clocks,

The little boy went scooting

Down the corridors of time,

And it was all so easy

For a young and open mind.


But now the boy’s a physicist

And studies all his days

To learn to build a time machine

In complicated ways,

And every day it’s clearer

What his facts and figures mean:

That only little boys can build

A real time machine.
