This image made me think of these lines from Robert Burns’ poem, To A Mouse, On Turning Her Up In Her Nest With The Plough.
“The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men,
Gang aft agley,”
[Modern English translation: “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”]
It also reminds me of the famous Project Management Tree Swing cartoon.
