Rule Of Three

The questions, 
as always, are these:
if you have a choice

among being target,
gun, or bullet, who
would choose target

over the other two?
And if you have rejected
becoming a target, 

do you prefer being
or agent?

These questions
are asked of you and
predicated upon

the fallacy that
you will have
a choice.  Choosing

far above our pay
grade in this

establishment —
but if we make
our own 

home on this 
range, we could be
either guns or bullets

as needed. We 
would automatically
become targets as well,

as we already are,
of course, but at least
we would not fall

without at least 
some notion of what
free will feels like.
