i have to admit
although i was
genius enough
to invent
a time machine,
i kind of wasted
the potential
by using it
to go back
in time
and yell at people
i am still angry at
despite getting
to yell at them
in the past.
i could have
killed baby Hitler,
but instead,
i told that girl
from grade school
what an asshole
she was.
talk about pathetic.
i went to
lots of people,
none of whom
knew the me
from today,
but no matter
how many
i cussed out,
the future /
present
now /
me
did not change,
did not become
happier.
and then
i realized
what i ought
to have done
was buy
a winning
lottery ticket.
dumbest.
genius.
ever.
