Hell In A Handbag

You have everything planned 
and you are all set to go, 
then something unexpected happens 
and everything you planned 
goes to hell in a handbag.

You can guarantee 
that all best laid plans 
will hit a snag somewhere 
and when it does, everything 
goes to hell in a handbag.

Planning in the outdoors, 
you have to rely on the weather. 
A sunny day is preferred, 
but just let the rain set in 
and it all goes to hell in a handbag.
