In The Beginning There Was A Thought
or the Negation of Free Will
by Richard Tornello
Wandering about the infinite multi-universes,
the creator’s gardens of creation,
It thought for a moment It might be bored and considered a very new idea.
Knowing the position of every atom and quark at each creation
It knew the future down to the last fart.
Add any variable and It still could take all that into consideration
and know each and every outcome.
It smiled and laughed. ‘Nope’ was the next thought.
