Time Traveller


I’ve got a hidden power

I travel back in time

It’s only ever backwards

As forwards is a crime

This power isn’t useful

You’ll probably wonder why

It takes me to a horrid place

A place that makes me cry

My travel strikes at random

When silly trigger strikes

Then instantly I'm back in time

To a place that no one likes

I wouldn’t take you with me

You won’t like what you’d see

Those things in time so long ago

They’re not your memory

So if you find me in a trance

Or crying frozen tears

I may have travelled back in time

To prosecute my fears
