Reversal Of Misfortune - Poem by Denis Martindale

A time machine could help reverse the times I simply made things worse
And made my life a living curse, in need of doctor and a nurse...
A time machine could reimburse, to help me plan and then rehearse,
My heart and soul then to immerse, to buy her diamonds, cars and furs!
To buy each handbag and each purse and anything that true love spurs...

But Gallifrey is far away and on this Earth I'm doomed to stay,
Without the chance to save the day, in hope that things turn out OK...
Alas, I press on, come what may... the laws of time and space obey...
God knows the reasons why I pray, but hardly has a thing to say...
My heart is lonely... cold as clay... No wonder that I shout, Oi, vey!
