AFTER THE FACT
(12/19/17)

we make
decisions

we take
actions

but sometimes
the best
of intentions
bounce back
to bite us
in the butt

explanations
are pointless

nobody cares
what we meant
to do

they only see
the consequences
of what
was done

they question us
about those
consequences

best
to admit
our obvious
errors

insist
that we have
learned
from them

accept
whatever fallout
as God's will
for us

then survey
the vast plain
of our readjusted
reality

knowing
that the temporary
wreckage
is now
our home
