Homemade Time Machine.....written by Crooklyn

I built a homemade time machine last night when I was bored.
I made it out of string and glue atop an old skateboard.
I strapped a helmet to my head (Always safety first!)
then gleamed the cube to '93 'cause that year was the worst.

I rolled myself straight down the drive that led to my high school
and found myself in study hall ‘cause I was such a tool.
I ripped the book right from my hands and gave myself a smack.
“We’re going out to find a girl. Don’t gimme any flak!”

Reluctantly I followed I, through frozen, silent halls
that once had echoed with the sounds of insult and catcall.
I took myself straight to the mall and bought myself some duds,
then had my hair cut in the style favored by the studs.

“Now listen-up, you little dork,” I lectured to myself.
“Leave those Magic™ cards at home… the sci-fi on the shelf!
There’s not a girl on God’s green earth who’ll give you time of day,
but with a lot of cash and work we’ll have you on your way.”

Now at this point my younger self looked openly confused.
“Isn’t that a wedding band?” I solemnly accused.
“Well, yes it is,” was my reply. “I’ve got this babe thing down.
So just do what I tell I to… we’ll turn me right around!

“But,” I cried, “that makes no sense! I like my games and books.
Since when did I start caring ‘bout my clothes or ‘bout my looks?”
My questions, frankly, startled me and threw me for a loop.
I hadn’t thought that I’d object or think myself a dupe.

“Just take me back to school,” I said. “I’ve had enough of this.
I liked myself just fine before and ignorance is bliss.”
“But don’t I want to kiss a girl before I graduate?
College will be better, but I’m shocked I want to wait!”

“It looks like I will be okay.” I said right back to me,
so with a shrug I wheeled us back in time for chemistry.
I’d never guessed that younger me was ever quite so zen,
but now I knew without a doubt that I was wiser then.

Oran ge Bin ge.....written by Eternum1

Nothing rhymes with orange
our teacher would lament
As I chewed a lozenge
I wondered what he meant

Oh, Orange
is a challenge
for poets on the fringe
No word can they scavenge
and use as a syringe

I guess I'll forgo orange
or rhyme upon its hinge
Just the thought of orange
really makes me cringe
