I finished my time machine yesterday;

The greatest accomplishment of my life.

 

Wanted to go to Athens to meet Socrates,

To ask him some questions;

Maybe share a drink

 

Then I remembered:

I don't speak Greek;

I have 20/80 vision;

I hate olives;

I easily sunburn;

I'm a fan of underwear;

I'm allergic to figs.

 

Today, I listed my machine on eBay.

There's no time like the present.
