If they ever invent the time machine, it better be portable device
And if it’s in mass quantity and cheap enough, everyone will want one
But if they invented the time machine
I could go back in time to the point it all went bad
And she left me and ended it
I could fix everything, resolve the issues, be the man I shoulda been
But then what if she also went back in time to fix another relationship
One that happened before she met me
Or some lovely lady I know decided it best to go back as well
To ensure that as I was getting dumped, that she be there to pick up the pieces
Or my friends who thought she was no good for me
Went back as well to ensure we never met
What a timeless mess that would be
Now remember that you travelling back in time and not transversing space
So the location you are now is where you’ll end up then
Now wouldn’t it be an expensive trip if you still have to travel to where you need to be
So if you travel back in time and where you are now,
At the time you arrive just might have been a busy highway
Or per chance you transport into a locked bedroom
Of two 80 year old ladies jerking off to a dominatrix porno
What if you took a recent discovery of your time
And went back to the past to claim that it was yours
But when you get then, the technological knowhow or understanding
Was not available to develop it, wouldn’t that be a waste of time
Or if you by the time you got back to the past
Some other zealot fellow had gone further
And had already laid claimed to the same discovery
What if I went back into the past to rob a bank I used to work at?
Arrived at the time only to find another set of employees
Who have traveled back trying to pull the same stunt as me?
We get into a shootout and I end up dead
A DNA test is done on me to identify the criminal
And my obituary announced on TV in a bank job gone wrong
While the me, in the past is vacationing somewhere.
What if I went back to the past and got the ‘me’ in the past killed
That would mean that me in the future would cease to exist
But then if I died in the past, then the me in the future never existed
So how the heck did I travel back to the past and get myself dead?
Now isn’t time travel just so confusing....
Keep traveling into the future, leave the past behind...
