Today's Word: Channel

Adrift in a sea of black and star
Man reaches out for what is far
He wishes to travel the channel of time
To break all seasons, cycles, and rhyme
But man with his mind trapped in white bone
Knows not the answer though the answer is shown
Time travelers all his teeming race be
Fleeing from the now to infinity
He races off to dream his dreams
Of raucous plans -- time cheating schemes
And realizes not the great irony
He traverses time like a ship at sea

Today's Word: Rodomontade
