Ok, I am again without sleep... bad cat issues, no sleep, so don't blame me for a difficult and forced something to read. Sprinkly... you probably won't understand this, so until the bbc re-airs Hitchiker's Guide, just bare with it. Heheheheheheeh!

Of all things probable, mostly bad I see
Have been expected by probability
How do you calculate let alone expect
The probable cause and its effect

A map, ships computer, towel, and a guide 
Maybe it's all to do with the mother ship
Expecting a possiblity, down a twisty slide
Taking you on a frightening, mind slushy trip

Sobbing, you bury your head in your towel
Lost in thoughts while wondering, why me
You realize your logic has gone a foul
You turn to your guide, for an answer seen

Your two headed captian, with a squeeze of lime
Takes you on a path to anywhere, but true
Running in circles in finding a straight line
A trusted auto pilot, of the ship within you

Highly improbable, yet possible, a choice
Any detour will remove its possiblity
Being on autopilot, you turn off your voice
To fail your self, a high probability

Autopilot now disabled, a ship lost
Without translation written, a useless map
Leaving you to make a choice, a coin tossed
A calculated probability of 2:1, for a mishap

For each failure you write in your map
To achieve a greater chance of success 
For when a choice ends up in your lap
Allowing probablity to be at its best

You wake from a crashing sound
Watching your home being torn down
Finding newly found freedom feeling nice
What ever you do, never listen to mice

As 42 only works when lost in some british story
