The Day I Discovered A Time Machine

it was a challenge


my first act was to change the settings


I couldn't find out too much

If I land in a world where I'm six foot under

I'd rather

not know about it

Then I had to do something


the habit I developed


betting on every horse race I could


I want to do something special

and the desire

to get rich beyond my wildest dreams


be what it's all about.


so much I could be doing. So many places

So many people I could be bringing back from the dead.
