OPPORTUNITY’S TARGETS

Standard issue eyes
standard issue names
standard issue sighs
standard issue blames.

Opportunities targets
stand in line all alone
as history often forgets
flinging a skipping stone.

Unhesitant without pause
others fall by the side
always another new cause
memories allowed to slide.

Appearing as if on call
conveniently blame follows
another innocent to fall
standard issue thus allows.
