A Possibility Within The World of Quantum Multi-Universe Probabilities

(for those daring souls so inclined)

by Richard Tornello

Strap the powder to your chest
with all these wires and such.
Hook the detonator to do the rest.
You’ll now be able to test your hunch.

Are these crazies on the mark,
or shooting quanta in the dark?
Universes side by side
in Quantum Multiverse Suicide.

The only problem here is,
only you will know if it’s true or lies is:
No return communication in
Quantum Multiverse suicide.

If so,
A charmed form of immortality for you.
If not,
It’s definite macro multi bits kablooie for youie
with the Quantum Multiverse Suicide device.
