Expect The Unexpected



Expect the unexpected in what's initiated.
The best laid plans and outcomes can oft be unrelated.

Expect the unexpected in your affiliation.
Particular agendas can lead to consternation.

Expect the unexpected in travel itineraries.
Aircraft, ship and road repair can modify what you please.

Expect the unexpected in the competitive sports.
New stars old guards outperform without response or retorts.

Expect the unexpected when a baby's on the way.
Ancestral inheritance can bewilder and dismay.

Expect the unexpected in the freedom from disease.
Transmittable infections can be wafted on a sneeze.

Expect the unexpected in transactions you pursue.
Perplexity and chaos can confound the things you do.
