Risking Opportunity

December 13, 2007
By Katherine McLaughlin, Hanapepe, HI

I went to the door,
and knocked three times.
"For Opportunity" it said,
everything will be just fine.
I stood there waiting,
listening to the sounds within.
The wheels of a chair,
across the floor they spin.
The wait was killing me,
as the doorknob turned slowly.
The door opened wide.
The veiw was unsightly.
-Opportunity is a risky chance
The results sometimes dire-
Because there stood the Grim Reaper,
in his dreaded black attire.
