Out Of Time

Wrote this poem then immediately came across this post in which Charlie Stross mocks an IPO based on disrupting the poetry market. Clearly things these things are meant to be. As it's a time machine poem, clearly timing is everything.

What happened before will happen again
As my memory changes and flickers
I sketch the circuit with paper and pen
Needing to make myself a replica

As my memory changes and and flickers
Combine history and engineering
Needing to make myself a replica
I'm desperately looking, seeking, peering

Combine history and engineering
Building from nothing what has always been
I'm desperately looking, seeking, peering
Sometime and somewhere is my time machine

Building from nothing what has always been
I sketch the circuit with paper and pen
Sometime and somewhere is my time machine
What happened before will happen again
