Often have I wondered
As the thoughts, in my skull thundered
What if I could build a ship,
The laws of physics, that would skip?
Not only would it sail the seas and stars;
Even the past wouldn't be from it barred!
The varying strokes of the future too,
Could be reached by pressing a button or two.
Who would I go to meet first?
Who would I want satiating my thirst?
Whose door would I knock down and burst,
Share with the weight of that power, blessed or cursed?
Would I go on to history change?
Get drunk on ability, and become deranged?
Or would I by the rules abide,
Watch from afar, on that miracle astride?
I may do this or may go with that,
Never will I know, until this ball hits my bat.
For while in theory, on the fence I am sat,
Practice might see me leap to action stat.
