No One's First Choice

I am the honey mustard of condiments
The Pepsi product parallel
The off-brand potato chips
The unfortunately unsalted caramel

I am the yellow game board piece
The three-legged dog from the pound
The slightly deflated basketball
The earbuds that glitch the sound

I am the chair with uneven legs
The somewhat wilted rose
The vaguely scuffed sneakers
The off-Broadway shows

I’m not the best of the best,
But I certainly have a voice
And although I may not be yours,
I am someone’s first choice.
