Best Laid Plans (A Sonnet)

“The best laid plans of mice and men oft go awry.”
-Robert Burns

(Do) what you can with what you’ve got
Even if it’s not a lot
Be resourceful, innovative
No excuses, get creative!

Plans disrupted suddenly?
(They never play out perfectly)
Don’t waste time wishing for what’s lost
Pay a needless opportunity cost

I know how life can be a jerk (so)
Cut your loss, then get to work!
It’s not the end, the show’s not done
I promise there’s more good to come

Past failure is a tool for the wise
The resilient one will win the prize
