Misquote - A drabble in honour of Robert Burns

Every last detail had been worked out, and many contingencies had been built in, yet the plan had still failed. U.N.C.L.E. had not been aware that their Thrush target had a wife, who was able to spirit him away from under their noses.

“I suppose it was true what Burns said,” Napoleon stated, with a sigh. “The best laid plans of mice and men, oft gan a-gley.”

“That isn’t quite correct, Mr Solo,” Waverly told him. “The line is ‘The best laid schemes o’ mice and men, gang aft a-gley’. Still, I take your point. We can’t win them all.”
