Liner Notes: 

Late on this one too. No crisis. The idea stemmed from hearing or reading once that the Chinese word for crisis is the same as opportunity. I don't know if that's true or whether that idea was exaggerated but I like it.

Skirmish Prompt: Crisis

Lyrics: 

Crisis is an Opportunity

For most an emergency
Is devastating at best
But my outlook is different
For me it's a test
Yes, I may be upset
Emotionally distraught
Yet I don't lose myself
It's what I was taught

A crisis is an opportunity
Waiting in disguise
At first it's not clear
Hidden well in a guise
So I try to make the most
Of whatever it is
Moving through the motions
Like the whole things a quiz

The key to understanding
Is being able to see
The trouble that lands in my lap
So that I can be
Able to carry on
No matter how bad it looks
The mess won't sink it's teeth
Into me with hooks

A crisis is an opportunity
Waiting in disguise
At first it's not clear
Hidden well in a guise
So I try to make the most
Of whatever it is
Moving through the motions
Like the whole things a quiz

I'll make plenty of mistakes each time they occur
Hopefully learning from events, so future ones aren't a blur

A crisis is an opportunity
Waiting in disguise
At first it's not clear
Hidden well in a guise
So I try to make the most
Of whatever it is
Moving through the motions
Like the whole things a quiz

I like this way of looking at things. And as usual, a really well constructed lyric that will definitely sing.
