That Future – Day 6 of National Poetry Month

Project Plan

He tells them
We’ll deliver it
By then
For so much

And then he tells me
Go plan it

Yes, me
Because I see the future
That’s my job

Then he asks me
What future do I see?
Are they happy?
Is it on time?
Is there money left?

No, I tell him

So he tells me
Make it like he saw

Yes, me
Because I change the future
That’s my job too

Now he asks
How ‘bout this time
Are they happy?
Is it on time?
Is there money left?

No, I tell him

He tells me
I’m not trying hard enough
He says
Give ’em what they want
That future

So I tell him
It’s like this…

And when I finish
He asks
It’s pre…what?
Predetermined?

I tell him again
How it’ll be late
And over budget
All-ways

He doesn’t buy it
He says there must be a way
To deliver it
By then
For so much

He’s asking the guys to work weekends
