The plans well-laid shan’t be displayed. Domain must never know
Grab twenty grand, or so they’ve planned, get flush and off they go
To run for smokes a killing joke, Nitrates in waters deep
To scam Domain a scheme insane, he’ll put this pair to sleep.
They’d run away this very day, secure a happy ending
Or wind up caught. Severe scene fraught. Beneath the ground unbending.
Honesty’s a must they say, to live outside the law
Keep it clean. Polished to sheen. Avoid the dragon’s maw.
Yet best laid plans may go awry despite tip top intentions
Live to tell the tales at best, while serving long detentions.
On deep regret the sun may set, a happy ending soiled
That fresh clean start could fall apart, a brand new day now spoiled.
