The irony of opportunity and outcome

Equality of opportunity?

Is something indeed

Equality of outcome?

No motivation to exceed

The sophist creates the word games

It can never logically solve

Sounding good in face value

Cloaked with deceit that often escapes resolve

Appealing only to the takers

Of the society they represent

Rejected by the producers

Hence the problem of our discontent

Be careful for what you wish for

There are many who would agree

The tragedy is in the details

There is never a guarantee

The irony of opportunity and outcome

The choices you make will declare

Which master you will follow?

Which master you will despair?
