Best-Laid Plans

Sometimes Need Change

catch inspiration and commence
efficiency of excitement
carries you through, around rough starts
it’s never much to begin with
makes you think it’ll be easy
while you go in with confidence
of your quick-thinking summations
under false impressions of ease  
until you realize that spark
was the start of a burning flame
resistant to offhand douses
meant no less than to entertain


Inspired form of “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”, translated from Scots “The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men, / Gang aft agley,” from To A Mouse, On Turning Her Up In Her Nest With The Plough by Robert Burns
