The music began with a low, moody, ominous bass part.
On screen, lightning played among the far hills.
Nobody seemed to have a plan as to how to stop the zombie invasion.
Except one! She pulled out her phone and that is what cued the Bollywood style dance-off!
She smelled easy money in the air
Everyone was all beer, pizza, and Buffalo winged out.
Now she felt it was time for her to execute her plan while they were in the drunken gluttony afterglow
So fellas, listen up. What do you say we have a little side wager on the game?
Everyone agreed. Two hours later she was seen five hundred dollars richer
Striking him across the face gave her satisfaction
Which brought all activity in the room to a halt
It caused him to hesitate to react to her attack
Pirouetting away from him, she stormed her way out
Everything had gone to plan. No one would question if she had stolen anything.
Connecting the dots ways always the easy part
Hard part was then making the dominoes fall in order
As so many factors had to be juggled for the Rube Goldberg plan to work
It was almost something straight from a summer blockbuster
Not that he had to worry about. The first link broke leaving him dreaming of what might have been
“Last thing I plan on doing is dying”
“I guess it’s a a way to live your life, but it’s sort of weird though.”
“Nah. Everyone should live that way. Now that you know my master plan, what is yours?”
“Everything I can do to help you achieve your end goal.”
Putting together ideas that function in lock step
Letting the dominos fall till their inevitable conclusion is so satisfying
And yet, without question, something will not go as you projected
Now how you engineer what comes after is a true test of your design
Random chance encapsulated by dancing cubes
Obliterating different realities as they settle down
Leaving Janice a bit shaken at the outcome
Losing was always a possibility, but she didn’t plan on this…
Crisp hundred dollar bill was slipped inside the card
Okay, maybe that wasn’t enough. A second one went in
Now that should buy some mercy or at least forgiveness
She couldn’t want that much more from him
Everything had gone according to plan
Quaint superstitions and taboos were maintained
Under his watchful eye
Everything had gone perfectly
Now he realized that perfect had been from his perspective
Couldn’t have anticipated she would have so much trouble with it
Everyone is a bit weird. People were messy, and she was people
Still, two hundred should buy his way out, right?
With everything arrayed in front of him
Albert just couldn’t make up his mind
Nothing there would satisfy his itch
Then again, it could be he desired it all. If only…
Sighing he just sat there
Neville grinned at Albert’s quandary
Everything was going according to plan
Even if Albert made a decision, he would regret it
Doubt was all Neville desired. His job here was done.
Satan will enjoy this soul!
Cutting out yet another bunny body from a paper plate
Ruth smiled to herself as her plan was coming together so nicely
All she needed to do was first attach the head and legs
Finishing it with a bit of color, cotton balls, and a bit of perfume
To think Stevie would unsuspectingly bring it home to his dad
Yet his dad would be horrified to realize that now Ruth knew he was married
