Waiting on Science

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.
