I Built Myself a Time Machine

I Built Myself a Time Machine

From the book My Hippo Has the Hiccups

I built myself a time machine

tomorrow afternoon,

then traveled back to yesterday,

and very, very soon

I’ll re-create my time machine

and travel once again

to yesterday where, like before,

I’ll wait two days and then

I’ll build myself a time machine.

I’m such a nincompoop.

I never should have made this thing.

I’m stuck inside a loop.
