NaPoWriMo 2017-05 -- a Poem about SpaceTime plus

The prompt today is to write about space time
We know more than we think, we use it all the time
Meet you on the corner of Elm and Broad
There we have space, two dimensions, Elm, Broad 
And they intersect only in one place 
Trouble. It's a seven story building 
Oh yes, don't forget there's a basement too
Add another dimension, height. Fifth floor 

Fine.  Shall we wait there all day, bring a book
No, we will meet there at noon for our lunch 
Add still another dimension, time, twelve
Surely that's enough, space and time, 4D 
It would be enough, space and time. Let's change
We'll not meet If it gets too hot or cold 
Not over eighty or under sixty
5D, Oak, Elm, floor, time, and temperature

I've illustrated, formula is yours 
You make, use x,y,z,t,and t'

He has an excellent discussion at the above link and includes a bit on the Theory of Relativity.  I copied a part of his first sentence of our instructions to make my first line.

That is very well explained.. parameters governing concepts that have no parameters.. space.. time..

I like the closing suggestion that we're still in charge and can manipulate it.

How we get to the same place at the same time may take two different paths, but it is still the same place and time. Once we are there.
