His Lifes Work
He began recording his findings in 1967
Took copious notes.
By the time he had finished figuring it out in 2021,
he had found all the ways you can break down a dollar bill.
He had recorded two hundred and ninety-one ways.
It had taken him fifty-four years.
He had not married.
Had no children.
Had never held a job.
This had encompassed his entire life.
He decided to publish his findings.
His great-aunt sent him an article from Google.
It stated there are 293 ways to break down a dollar.
He killed himself the next day.
