Hindsight

Hindsight
Is a wonderful thing
It works wonders for things
That you couldn't see before
But it usually means
That you're locking up the door
After your opportunity went galloping away
You never get foresight for tomorrow
Just hindsight for yesterday
And yesterday's through
So now what should I do or say?

This doesn't refer to any particular event - rather, to a whole class of them...
