Good Plan - Poem by David Darbyshire

It's a good Plan
To take one day at a Time
Not like Fred
He looks years Ahead

Have you heard the new Arrangement
By Clement?
It's a Mastermind
But not like Belinda
She has no Agenda

You hear about Clem?
He has a new System
he just made a Draft
Not like Pap
Driving without a Map

I think, I thought
An Idea I did Intend
About a good Plan
But I changed the Program

Thats bad Stratagy
No Ability
To aim, To Aspire
Now I've forgot, and lost the Plot

    I feel I'm looking in the mirror. But planning is dull, and the unread map infinitely more interesting (sometimes) . Yet one feels bad for plans unmade or plans amiss..... Love this. Who could not relate to it? ! ! ! (Report)Reply
