Time Traveler

The machine built
Calculations made
Dials spun
He sent her forward
His most trusted friend
His life's mate

The machine shook
Computer churned
Travel done
She had come backward
His helpful partner
His new wife

What did she observe
He asked her, excited
Hoping for news
Of the future's marvels

You're still quite selfish
She noted, discouraged
But worse, data shows
Our sons are, too.
