mice

last night stove rattled
morning, countertop droppings
my best-laid plans change

************************

From dictionary.com:

“‘The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry’:
Definition—No matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it.
The saying is adapted from a line in ‘To a Mouse,’ by Robert Burns:
‘The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft a-gley.’”
