Opportunity came knocking,
Showed me his ID,
Came with his rehearsed spiel,
We are in your area this week,
Us opportunists!
With our reduced deals,
Yes! I thought! 
I know your game,
I tried to speak,
He got louder,
Don’t miss out he said,
This offer is the best,
Exclusively for you,
Sign up today 	
Your last chance!
I kept saying! No
He wouldn’t listen
Promising me the world,
He must be programmed,
I’ll get rid of him,
Slam the door shut! I thought,
Raise my voice!
His foot Jammed firmly in the door,
So I acted like I was interested
Agreed with him,
Played along with his game,
Yes opportunity that sounds great,
He got very excited,
Started to go in for the kill
I was laughing inside,
Wondered when he would stop,
No other opportunity was better, 
Yes I thought but even opportunist gets tired,
And he did,
I looked him straight in the eyes,
No, I said!
This time I knew that he had heard me,
Not today thank you.
That was the last time 
Opportunity passed my way.

I love your take on the theme Wendy! It is actually illegal to cold canvass on the streets of our little Island so we do not have to suffer this scenario:-) good luck in the contest:-) hugs jan xx
