The problem not beingThe epicenter which is the target, butRather, the focal points, the aims. ForTheir means couldn’t justify the ends. So,They backed out from the crowd ofDeluded desperadoesThen, one of the insiders cried out…“If you cannot beat us, come on, join us”In response, an outsider replied…“In that case, we will have to beatYou all, to prove we have better aimsTo your targets”
