ACCORDING TO PLAN 04.21.10 prompt according to ____________

According to Plan

The more important the occasion
The less likely things will go
According to plan

It’s a type of Murphy’s law
Or one of those trite sayings like,
While you were making plans God had
Other ideas

Still, there’s an irresistible lure
For many of us, who just can’t
Seem to go with the flow

We need to chart our path
Make sure the planets are aligned
Before we venture out to do
Anything much at all

Fearing that to be too spontaneous
Is to court certain disaster
Leaving little room for joy

Or accidental happiness, we lead
Lives of quiet desperation but,
Always according to plan
