A real life VCR



I wish someone would invent

A VCR to help me prevent

The passing of time

Would that be such a crime?


A real life VCR

Two buttons on the tollbar

Fast forward and rewind

No instructions to purblind


Oh VCR, take me back in time

To that place of sublime

Tooth fairies n’ tales

Giant peaches that sail


Oh VCR, do take me back in time

To that coming of age and wine

Poised on the promise of life

Fearless, unabated foresight


The sweet scent of cut grass,

A band plucking blueglass,

Floral dresses at dusk,

Purity wrapped in husk


Oh VCR, take me back in time

When life burst with colour n' you were mine

Days of awe n’ wonder

Moroccan horses, stars n’ thunder


Oh VCR, take me forward in time

Far away from the crime

That poisoned life with strife

Remorse alone runs rife


Oh VCR, do take me forward in time

Far far away from the crime

To a pantheon where pain is gone

n' love flowers the garden of Babylon


Oh VCR, take me forward or back in time

Either is fine

The passing of time

Oh wouldn’t that be fine
