déjà vu

And here it is! My time machine!
the electricity bill’s obscene
and the only other limit
is it takes you back about a minute
but that’s a kink
I’ll straighten out in time, I think
so…what more can I say
but thanks so much for turning out today
I’m sorry the paintwork isn’t neater
now – if you’d all step back a metre…

Thanks for accepting the invitation
to attend my little demonstration
which is, in short
nothing less than the future of transport
I’m absolutely certain
when I draw back the curtain
you’ll be stunned and amazed
(no photos, I’m afraid)

And here it is! My time machine!
the electricity bill’s obscene
and the only other limit
wait – what?
