He switched the Trans-Dimensional-Loophole-Machine off with a sigh. It didn’t work. It never works!

Outside, unseen, Pteranodons glide through the sky.

He switched the Trans-Dimensional-Loophole-Machine off with a sigh. It didn’t work. It never works!

Outside, unseen, Martians patrol empty streets.

He switched the Trans-Dimensional-Loophole-Machine off with a sigh. It didn’t work. It never works…

Now, what sort of OOC mod would I be if I didn't enter my own contest?!



They say there is a heart,
Inside the machine.
Way down in depths unseen
                                                           (deeper and deeper)
It beats eternal as it sleeps
I hear the beating that it keeps
A drum for war, a beacon for peace
                                                           (deeper and deeper)
Soon we will reach and soon we will see
What the machine will release

New inventions change the world. We all know that. The human race makes so many advancements that it would be hard for us not to realize eventually. But are all of our changes really for the better? I think as I look upon the wreckage of our society and wonder how we went so wrong.

A birthing begun with a switch-flick,
Trouncing, thrashing, twisting...
Sharp sounds of metal against metal,
Clanging, clashing, clanking...
Red orbs ablaze like an inferno,
Leering, looking, locating...
Jump-starting into a consciousness,
Ripping, ravaging, rending...
Wreaking havoc on a thumping pump,
Sent agony ringing through conductors;
First emotion born to life mechanical-
