Time Machine

Pick Your Gadget

Now, I’ve been asked my thoughts
of to be seen
of what i’d do
wi a time machine

It would be tempting,
to travel in time
and meet wi some writers
I’ll mention in th’rhyme

I’d meet wi’ Kipling and Baden Powell
and then under the canvas we’d look
at those all animals listed in
that there Jungle Book

And whilst in the jungle
I’d hatch up a plan
to call up that there Hannibal,
the Elephant Man

Tommy cooper would provide the laughs
as Francis Drake mapped charts and graphs
calculating the best place to be –
and making sure we don’t show up in th’sea!

And when we planned where we wanted to be,
we’d set time and course by watch and degree.
Aiming to get there, and being quite quick,
So we could enjoy a time travelling picnic
