Making of My Wonder Machine

October 22, 2009
I’m going to build my wonder machine.
My wonder machine will do wonders.
There will be nothing like my wonder machine,
It is a bit difficult to describe.
I guess I have to make an outline.
I just need some paper…

I made the outline for my wonder machine,
It is complexly grand, inspiring, amazing.
So many things I will need for my wonder machine,
But I bet I’ll be able to find them.
I hope mom doesn’t mind if I look in the kitchen…

I have all the parts for my wonder machine,
The bits and pieces will make a marvel.
I will assemble it in the garage.
If I want to finish before lunch, I have to start now.
Now where is that blowtorch…?

Finally, I’ve finished my wonder machine,
I will be with the ranks of the great,
But when I take a look at the wonder machine,
It looks a bit, who am I kidding, a lot like a…
Microwave, blender, double whisk, toaster, sharpener,
Radio, three faucet, bubble blower, waffle iron,
And some other blasted contraptions,
But at least it works…no, it doesn’t.
Oh well, I wonder if there is anything good on TV.
