The Day Time Went Backwards

Kitty broke the teapot,

She knocked it off the sill;

Stacey found the pieces just

As time stood still.

Time rolled backwards;

The teapot gathered up

And fit itself together

And poured itself a cup.

Weeks run backwards

But the strangest thing we saw

Is, Kitty’s just a kitten now,

A-wailing for her ma.
