All is Lost!

I found something I’d written from a few years ago. I stuffed it into a “junk drawer” type of folder and promptly forgot all about it.

We have not factored in

     all the variables.

All is lost, all is lost.

     Everything is lost.

We have failed to predict

     any of the effects.

All is lost, all is lost,

     understand? It’s lost.

We could not have foreseen

     this unfortunate course.

All is lost, all is lost!

     Oh God save our souls!

Rather despairing, isn’t it?
