I've had just enough time to... ponder on what a nail can do
Taken of the little nail that caused a lot of havoc
A nail, a tyre, a delay,
A business lost
It is all in the details, my dear Watson
For want of a nail a battle was lost
I’ve a problem, Master Sherlock
It is you who said - Don’t sweat the small stuff
Well, that is a different story
In a different setting
Under different circumstances
We think differently
But how does one know
When to paint in big strokes
And when to notice of
The missing of a hair?
The tea is brewing, dear Watson
A cup of tea in the afternoon
That is a big picture
And to brew the perfect cup –
Practice, practice, till perfect, my dear Watson
For Want of a Nail
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
