Back to the Future Day (A poem)

Posting this a couple of days late…

The day we all saw in the movie has arrived
but the future doesn’t look like it was supposed to

Wheels are still firmly on the ground
Locks still require keys
The Cubs probably won’t make it to the Series
Where we’re going, we still need roads

After today, it’s all a blank slate
What once was the future
will from now on be the past
Our future is what we want it to be

Unless we go back to 1885…
