Poor Timing

Looking backwards as we try to advance
The end determined before we begin.
Cause and Effect. Action at a distance.
Changing the model; plug new data in.

The end determined before we begin
Day and night I work on information.
Changing the model, plug new data in,
Enlightenment rises up with the sun.

Day and night I work on information
Trying to figure out what it all means
Enlightenment rises up with the sun
Equations that describe a time machine.

Trying to figure out what it all means
Cause and Effect; Action at a distance.
Equations that describe a time machine
Looking backwards as we try to advance.
The pantun or pantoum, with it's repetition and circling back to the beginning at the end, ought to be a good form for a time travel poem. I'm not quite there yet, but this isn't too embarrassing.
