The Time Machine

After years of thorough research Total secret from Christian Church Friends and family have no idea I invented a perfect panacea Crafted malleable Time Machine No one on Earth could have foreseen Anneal and temper machine was built To facilitate life -- lived to the hilt You want to go back in time with me ? Heed the rules and then we'll see Can’t change the past, nor save Lincoln Not the purpose if that’s your thinking The warp of time starts from the heart You'll feel the change when we depart Enclosure fits two, no more can go Both make amends no quid pro quo Now press the button, pull on my Vandyke On that brave moment super nova shall strike Abscond, attempt to destroy temporal might Your angst will build walls no more, in flight _____________________________________ Author's Note This is Part I of an ongoing series that also, and eventually, ties into the Templar Knight series involving the protagonist Sir Thomas de Charney. ______________________________________

Why thank you ~LINDA~ so kind of you to read this an respond. This series ties in with the Templar Knight series. I am about to post the first poem of that series (not chronologically). It can get confusing, but I hope the poems stand alone enough to enjoy them. The story lives on. Thomas

Gordon, thank you sir. This Time Machine series ties in with another called the Templar Knight series. It will take time to see how they tie in, but one has to bear with me on it. Seeing that it's near impossible for a fellow poet to read every one of them, I have no expectations. They are an outline for a future novel, possibly. I hope each poem stands on its own and you enjoy them should you read any more of them. I need to get back to PS anyway. Thanks, Thomas
