Ten Cent Plan

a terrible waste

the way we fret fate
closing minds
obsessions and maniacal quivering
scheming and plotting


and concerned about it

on the ten year plan
more like a ten cent plan

depending on assumptions and calculations
mathematics as truth
adds up but doesn't really divide into anything
and we can multiply the subtractions
only a fraction of our prime

fate has reasons, to be sure
everything has a reason
anticipation is forgotten
shoulda coulda woulda

a fools fate
