Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Foresight

(Hindsight is good, foresight is better; but second sight is best of all.)


Stagnant as green algae

Covering a pond

Everyone wants to know

What’s lying there beyond

Waiting around the corner

Hidden by the bend

Might be a bright future

Or maybe your life’s end

No crystal ball will help you

No wish upon a star

For what it was and what it is

Your meddling might mar

Humans try to push their fate

In a positive direction

But animals have the clue

They wisely skip deflection.
