If you could travel back in time,
to what century would you return?
Would Ancient Egypt be your stop,
mystical secrets you wish to learn?
Or, would you travel to the Sinai Mount,
to catch a glimpse of the burning Bush?
In hopes of seeing Almighty God,
in the lands around ancient Cush.
Perhaps, more modern history,
is part of your travel plans,
to visit President Abraham Lincoln,
in DC, or camped near Rebel lands.
Would you try to stop Adolf Hitler,
or the sick acts of Jack the Ripper?
Or instead travel to Ancient Greece,
with Socrates, gaze at the Big Dipper?
Of course, you could watch Michangelo,
as he painted the mighty chapel ceiling,
or ask Vincent Van Gogh to please explain,
hs severed ear, what was he feeling?
Did General Washington really stand,
as he crossed the Delaware that night?
or did someone paint that image,
without having that event in sight?
If I could ride in a time machine,
and journey to a time in the past.
If I did find Shangri-La in the Tibetian hills,
that destination would be my last.
