“A wise man proportions his belief to the evidence”


My time machine worked.

Oh, my time machine worked!

I was courted by "the" David Hume.

Some might call him odd with that powdery wig.

One could scoff at his three-cornered hat.

GQ may not rate him, some may not date him

But I was aroused by his chat.


We had a fine date and to you I'll relate

as we shared our thoughts on sin.
