Short – Jibber Jabber Prompt

Short on Time - Rewind


Slightly used travel machine
For purchase. Sight unseen
To relive the past or move forward fast
Only while quantities last

A rare find indeed
Nothing guaranteed
I trust you 

Nevermind a loose screw
A missing part or two
Let's see what this puppy can do

A piece of junk
I must have been drunk
Should look to get my head shrunk

Parts were missing 
What was I thinking
When the guy said "Godspeed," was he winking

Energy zapped 
Money tapped and 
I cannot go back

Life reassessed
Was this a test
Too much self-interest

Time ... when not wasted
Beauty, I've tasted
Nothing in life is jaded

No! In fact. I don't want to go back
Look at me. BOLD!
The future. Behold!
