There ought to be a way of doing this.
A simple trick. A key. That’s all I ask.
A way to let me get from here to there
without the stupid interval of time
That makes me wait, that doesn’t let me know
the future now. I am a patient man.
I only want to know the future now.
The trick to reading mysteries is just
to read the ending first, and then if you
don’t like the way it ends don’t read the book.
And if you do, then do. It’s simple, yes?
The same with movies. If you like the end
then watch the film, and if you don’t, then don’t.
So what’s the trick that bends the wheel of time
and lets me know the future now not then?
There’s got to be a trick to know right now
what I will know eventually. I know.
I have been told forever, “Things take time.”
I know they do. I wish they didn’t though.
I wish there was a trick, a way for me
to skip the intervening time and see
exactly what it is the future holds.
There’s got to be a way of doing this.
